Common Rooms and Shared Spaces

Particularly in shared spaces, students should be aware of and receptive to the feelings and needs of others. Some group activities can be isolating or offensive (regardless of intent) and may create an unwelcome or threatening environment. Misogynist and racist themes are pervasive in some video games and music, for example. Requests from others to adjust behavior or activities in common spaces should be respected so these spaces may be more welcoming and inclusive to all.
