Civility Committee

The Lake Worth Civility Committee works to make our campus an even nicer place to be.  Due to the all-volunteer nature of our committee, and the fact that we have no budget, we mostly do small monthly awareness events (usually joining other campus events) to lift the spirit, spread smiles, and remind people of the importance of kindness.  In addition to these monthly events, we meet once a month in fall and spring, typically on the second or third Friday of the month, from 10 to 11 a.m.  We also host a conference in October (Civility and Respect Through Understanding, or CARTU) and Civility Is Sweet week in February.  Additional civility-related initiatives can be undertaken provided members have sufficient time to work on them. Our committee is open to employees and students. RESPONSIBLE DEPARTMENT: Civility Committee
