Civility Means to
Think the best
Don't speak ill
Accept and give praise
Respect even a subtle "no"
Respect others' opinions
Speak quietly (and rediscover silence)
Tell the truth
Accept and give constructive criticism
Take proactive steps towards civility every day.
You and I have the right and responsibility to expect civility from each other.
It is important for Staff and Faculty to be involved! Contact the co-chair, go to an event or meeting or contact CEOD via Fernanda Gama (email).
