Compton College Statement
of Civility & Mutual Respect
The manner in which we interact with one another is critical to cultivating and maintaining
a meaningful and effective intellectual environment.
- Compton College is committed to the highest standards of academic and ethical integrity,
acknowledging that respect for self and others is the foundation of educational excellence.
As such, we will cultivate an environment of mutual respect and responsibility.
- Compton College encourages a climate of respect and inclusiveness that welcomes and
embraces community members with diverse backgrounds and life experiences; deliberately
seeks multiple perspectives; and supports the free and open exchange of ideas and
- Compton College uses contributions of the community to promote diversity, creativity,
accountability, and transparency. Through Collaborative Governance, all constituent
groups work together, in good faith, to make decisions related to policies, procedures,
and practices for the benefit of the students and community that we serve.
Our community can only continue to thrive when we approach each interaction and conversation
with an open mind and when each member can contribute fully. Civility facilitates
professional growth and achievement and promotes an environment where each person
can reach his or her full potential.
