Civility at Pace

  • 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.

    • 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 (email, 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.
