Civility statement

The University of Akron is an educational community of diverse peoples, processes and programs. While all of us have our individual backgrounds, outlooks, values and styles, we all share certain principles of personal responsibility, mutual respect and common decency.

Our campus culture requires that we maintain and extend those principles, for without them we cannot thrive as a humane and worthwhile university.

We share an expectation to uphold the following principles of culture as part of our responsibility to promote a civil climate for learning on our campus:

  • Intellectual culture
  • Culture of diversity
  • Caring culture
  • Culture of civility
  • Responsible culture
