PRINCIPLES OF ONE COMMUNITY
February 29, 2008
By Dave Jones
Here is a portion of the Principles of One Community:
As we celebrate UC Davis' centennial anniversary and a hundred years of shared history, we reflect upon our past and look toward our future with the following basic principles:
- We affirm our shared responsibility to promote and sustain a united community that acknowledges and celebrates differences.
- We affirm the inherent value of each and every member of our shared community.
- We acknowledge that the establishment of our community and its continued development are tied to the cooperation of our respective institutions and the interactions of our fellow citizens based on mutual consideration and respect.
- We appreciate the diversity of viewpoints held within our community and recognition that our actions and decisions have consequences that impact each other. In recognition of our shared values and mutual interdependence, we strive to make decisions in an open and inclusive manner that respects, nurtures and reflects understanding of the needs and interests of all community members.
- We maintain an accepting and sensitive community where everyone is free to live, learn and work without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs, age, length or place of residence, or other differences among people.
