Revelle College is committed to UCSD Principles of Community


Reminder of Opportunities to Engage Our Principles of Community

I take this opportunity to reissue our September campus notice regarding our shared responsibility to engage our Principles of Community.

Democracy is complex because no two people are the same. Our increasingly diverse campus community is home to individuals who hold vastly different political and ideological views. We honor this diversity and encourage the exchange of perspectives in constructive, responsible ways. We cannot allow the increasing level of political polarization, anxiety, fear, and affronts that pervade our current national discourse to disrupt and divide our campus community.

It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.

Join me in reaffirming and Engaging Our Principles of Community. The campus notice from September can be found here:
