Community Agreements

The Office of Social Justice Initiatives & Identity Programs is dedicated to the holist development. With that in mind, we have community agreements that we centralize within our space:

  • Ask from a place of curosity rather than judgement
  • Listen to understand, not to respond
  • Utilize gender inclusive language
  • Practice grace and humility
  • Call in rather than out
  • What's said her stays here, what's learned here leaves here
