maintaining a collegial environment

  • 1. Encouragement
  • Encouragement helps us do our best work. Let’s take time to recognize and express appreciation to our colleagues for their good work.
  • 2. Support
  • Let’s make an effort to be the type of colleague who listens to and helps a peer when it would be easier to focus on our own responsibilities and projects.

  • 3. Collaboration
  • As we collaborate on committees and in other settings, let’s cultivate a sense of understanding and goodwill, be willing to respectfully challenge one another when necessary, and support the results of our collective decision-making.
  • 4. Rapport
  • Let’s find ways to build rapport with one another based on our interests both inside and outside of academe.

5. Risk and Opportunity

  • Let’s be willing to venture outside our own projects and areas of interest to explore common goals and forge new connections with our department, college, and university colleagues.
  • 6. Guidance
  • Let’s be the kind of colleague who challenges others to grow as professionals and who helps others find the positive in situations when they have lost hope or are filled with self-doubt. Let’s also be wise and humble enough to reach out and ask others for help when we need it.
