"It is our vision that individuals accept ownership of and take responsibility for resolving conflicts and problems in the community."
UC Santa Barbara is a community of people from diverse backgrounds. All activities, programs, and everyday interactions are enriched by our acceptance of one another, and the knowledge we gain when we learn from each other in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect. We are about working with you and helping you make better choices while learning from the ones you made along the way.
The Office of Judicial Affairs in Residential & Community Living can help. Our staff strive to be proactive and provide opportunities to get involved in our community. Additionally, we respond to situations that are in conflict with community standards. As a member of this community you are expected to respect the rights of others in the greater spirit of higher education.
I am pleased that you have chosen UCSB as your home and I look forward to seeing you at our events, encourage you to get involved in leadership programs such as the Peer Review Board and Residence Hall Association, and make the most out of your UCSB experience.
