May is Civility Awareness Month!

Community Pledge

As a member of the Pace University Community, I pledge to conduct myself with dignity and respect.

I am accountable for my words and actions.

I believe in integrity.
I believe in diversity.
I believe in equality.
I believe in civility.


Pace Community Standards

  • Model the behavior you would like to see from others.
  • Speak up—do not let your silence condone disrespectful behavior.
  • Be mindful that conflict is healthy if expressed appropriately—you are not always right and others are not always wrong.
  • Be a respectful listener.
  • Remember that your tone of voice matters: It’s not what you say, it’s what others hear!
  • Consider how your use of technology (e-mail, social media, etc.) helps or hinders a respectful work environment.
  • Make an effort to have difficult conversations in person or by telephone, not electronically.
  • Embrace a positive and solution-oriented approach to resolving conflicts or expressing complaints.
  • Show appreciation by saying please and thank you.
  • Keep in mind that kindness has a ripple effect—treat everyone with respect and consideration.
