Last week, hundreds of members of the College community took the Lafayette Civility Pledge in Farinon College Center.

As part of the College’s civility project, students, faculty, and staff got their pictures taken and placed on the pledge walls.

According to John Colatch, College chaplain and director of religious life, the pledge wall is a small, but very visible sign that people are willing to think, talk, and act in ways that enhance the quality of life for all who work, study, and socialize on campus.

The Lafayette Civility Project hold events and activities meant to encourage people to live together as thoughtful and respectful members of a diverse community.

The civility pledge is: “As a member of the Lafayette community, I will conduct myself in a way that strives to respect the physical and emotional well-being of others as individuals and the community as a whole. I will exercise good judgment as to my personal conduct and exhibit good will towards the other members of my community. I will not remain silent when these values are disrespected by others.”

Members of the civility project team are: Hemendra Bhola ’12; Pam Brewer, associate dean of students and director of student life programs; John Colatch; B J Glenn ’11; John McKnight, associate dean and director of intercultural development; Scott Morse, director of athletic communications; Elaine Reynolds, associate professor of biology; Hannah Stewart-Gambino, dean of the College; and Bianca Vassare ’12.
