Principles of Community

UC Davis is a diverse community comprised of individuals having many perspectives and identities. We come from a multitude of backgrounds and experiences, with distinct needs and goals. We recognize that to create an inclusive and intellectually vibrant community, we must understand and value both our individual differences and our common ground. The UC Davis Principles of Community is an aspirational statement that embodies this commitment, and reflects the ideals we seek to uphold.

The UC Davis Principles of Community set forth ideals and expectations for campus interactions. Members of the UC Davis community are expected to treat each other with respect and dignity, to refrain from displays of inappropriate anger or intimidating conduct, to shun epithets or abusive language, and to find effective means to disagree, to persuade and to inform through rational discussion.

The Muir Institute expects all UC Davis faculty and staff to understand and acknowledge the UC Davis Principles of Community. More information on the Principles of Community can be found on the UC Davis Office of Campus Community Relations website.
