Supporting a Diverse and Inclusive Community

Members of our community are expected to demonstrate respect and show sensitivity to differences in others. All members of the community are entitled to and responsible for maintaining an environment of civility that is free from disparagement, intimidation, discrimination, harassment, and violence of any kind. We expect each member of the community to take responsibility for building and improving the quality of our community. We expect that as an educated community we will have a tolerance for others’ opinions and openness to their perspectives. We expect that every member of the Emmanuel community will accept diversity, value inclusivity, and be civil in dealings with each other. The College does not tolerate racism, sexism, classism or discrimination based on sexual orientation. We hope that all members of our community will model and teach respect for the differences among us and celebrate the similarities that unite us as a people worthy of dignity.
