About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of Conference Housing and Dining Services at the University of California, Davis is as follows:

  • To act as campus ambassadors for our guests, enhance their experience by providing clean and comfortable accommodations, and deliver guest service which surpasses expectations.

  • To provide an engaging and supportive work environment, that fosters professional career development for our associates and promotes financial success.

  • To share our pride in UC Davis by delivering a unique and memorable experience for our guests and staff.

Department Philosophy

The students and employees of the University of California, Davis Student Housing Department are a multicultural community of people from diverse racial, ethnic, class backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, and sexual orientations. We are unique in that we strive to work together and live together and learn from one another in an atmosphere of positive contact and mutual respect.

We want to make clear our expectations concerning the behavior of each member of our community. We are individually and collectively responsible for our behavior and are fully accountable for our actions. We must take individual responsibility for our own learning and awareness and avoid all action that diminishes others.

Bigotry will not go unchallenged within this community. No one has the right to denigrate another human being on the basis of national origin, sexual orientation, race, gender or religious affiliation. We will not tolerate verbal or written abuse, threats, harassment, intimidation or other forms of aggression against any member or group of members of our community. In this context, we do not accept anger, alcohol, or substance abuse as an excuse, reason, or rationale for such abuse, harassment, intimidation, or violence. Ignorance or “it was just a joke” is also not an excuse for such behavior. Such behavior will be subject to the severest of employment and student conduct disciplinary action.

All of us who work and live in the Davis Student Housing community are here by choice and value commitment to these principles which are an integral part of our purpose, values and daily activities.
