The CED community seeks to provide and support an inclusive, collegial climate that values members for their unique contributions, promotes a healthful and constructive learning environment, and engages active participation in the academic, programmatic, and administrative functions of the college.
Part I – Expectations of the Community
Members of the CED community demonstrate collegiality by a willingness to serve in administrative, departmental and college activities, participate in discussions germane to departmental, administrative unit and college-wide policies and programs, engage in discourse that is inclusive and respectful, and consider how individual and organizational conduct and decisions might impact diverse constituencies within CED.
Part II –Conduct
All members of the CED community exemplify the responsibilities and ethical principles as stated in the UC and campus codes of conduct:
Faculty Code of Conduct
Berkeley Code of Conduct
Student Code of Conduct
Members of the community are proactive in providing constructive critique and appreciation and refrain from unacceptable behavior such as:
- Demeaning comments and/or dismissive behavior during meetings, reviews, and other gatherings.
- Aggressive and intimidating communication whether it is in person, written or electronic.
- Physical touching of others without permission.
To promote and foster an environment that encourages sharing and collaboration (teaching, research, service) within and across CED disciplines, faculty, staff and students actively engage in the work of the community by:
- Participating in and contributing to meetings, lectures, recruiting events, and strategic initiatives.
- Seeking out joint projects and extending invitations to participate in each other’s courses, research, and events.
- Honoring the commitment of the instructional and administrative functions of the college by attending classes and meetings as scheduled by departments, Chairs and Committee Chairs and (for faculty) following the guidelines for time spent in outside consulting.
Part III – Healthy and Welcoming Climate
Faculty, staff and students create a climate that respects and supports increasing diversity of all kinds (ethnic, racial, religious, linguistic, gender, etc.) in every aspect of what we do, from teaching to outreach to our interactions with one another, visitors and the community at large. We demonstrate healthful living for one another and cultivate awareness of practicing physical and mental wellness.
