Governance of University Theme Housing
University Theme Houses (Academic and Special Interest) are governed by the Committee on Residential Learning (CoRL), a large and diverse committee providing broad support for residence-based programs that serve undergraduates. Ethnic Theme Houses are overseen directly by the Undergraduate Residence Governance Council, which includes the Vice Provost for Budgets and Auxiliaries Management, Vice Provost for Student Affairs, and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. Learn more about CoRL and the governance structure for Ethnic Theme Houses below.
Committee on Residential Learning (CoRL)
Over the years, house themes have ranged from fairly informal events and activities to specific emphases in programming. We’ve redeveloped this crucial part of residential life to better align with the neighborhood and campus-wide sense of community.
Governance of Ethnic Theme Houses
In the establishment of a governance structure for these houses, the university is codifying an enduring commitment to the four ethnic theme programs that exist on campus.
