UC Davis Principles of


The University of California, Davis, is first and foremost an institution of learning and teaching, committed to serving the
needs of society. Our campus community reflects and is a part of a society comprising all races, creeds and social
cumstances. The successful conduct of the university's affairs requires that every member of the university community
acknowledge and practice the following basic principles: par par We affirm the inherent dignity in all of us, and we strive
to maintain a

climate of justice marked by respect for each other. We acknowledge that our society carries within it
historical and deep
rooted misunderstandings and biases, and therefore we will endeavor to foster mutual understanding
among the many parts of our whole
. par par We affirm the right of freedom of expression within our community and also
affirm our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency towards all. We recognize the right of every
individual to think and speak as dictated by personal
belief, to express any idea, and to disagree with or counter another's
point of view, limited only by university regulations governing time, place and manner. We promote open expression of our
individuality and our diversity within the bounds of courtesy,
sensitivity and respect. par par We confront and reject all
manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation,
religious or political beliefs, status within or outside the university, o
r any of the other differences among people which
have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension or hatred. We recognize and cherish the richness contributed to our
lives by our diversity. We take pride in our various achievements, and we celebrate our

differences. par par We
recognize that each of us has an obligation to the community of which we have chosen to be a part. We will strive to build
a true community of spirit and purpose based on mutual respect and caring. par par April 20, 1990
