  • Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox's "Campus of Respect" Letter to the Community

    [October 6, 2014] A core attribute of a major research university is the exchange of a diversity of ideas, perspectives, and opinions. At the University of California, Riverside, we celebrate our rich mixture of cultures, backgrounds, and outlooks, as well as differences in race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, physical abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and more.

    As members of the UCR community, we are continually learning, and often we learn the most when we disagree with one another or challenge traditional assumptions. However, as we share our sometimes disparate views, we must always maintain an environment of respect and civility.

    We have the right – and privilege – of free speech. With this right, however, comes responsibility. As we exercise our freedom of speech, we must remain sensitive to the perspectives of others and faithful to our values of openness, civility, and respect. UCR strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment that encourages intellectual growth and spirited discussion and, when necessary, denounces words that incite acts of incivility, violence, bigotry, discrimination, or intolerance.
