Principles of Community Week 2024

“Connecting as a Community”

Principles of Community Week 2024

(February 12 - February 16)
View upcoming events
 

Welcome to the 2024 Principles of Community Week! UC Davis campuses in Davis and Sacramento come together each year to celebrate the Principles of Community — our shared aspirations to value our individual differences and common ground, as we work to create an inclusive and intellectually vibrant community.
 

Let’s remember our Principles of Community, which starts with this simple yet powerful sentence: We affirm the dignity that is inherent in each of us.

This is who we are.” —Chancellor Gary S. May

During this celebratory week, there are a series of events and activities that celebrate and center around the Principles of Community. These celebrations reaffirm our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency towards all. Events are both in-person on both campuses and virtual.

  • Ideas for creating a "Principles of Community" moment for your friends and colleagues

  • Here are some ways to engage with the Principles of Community during the week:
    • Bring coffee, snacks, and copies of the Principles of Community to a team meeting.
    • While sharing food in community, do a “Principles of Community” break where you ask folks to share some way they incorporate the Principles into their daily practice. 
    • Host a potluck where colleagues or friends bring dishes that represent traditions or culture that are important to them. 
    • Take a sentence from the Principles of Community and ask folks to comment on what it means to them.
    • Play the newest Principles of Community video at a meeting (remote or in person).
    • Create your own Principles of Community Week "watch party" by attending a virtual event with friends or colleagues.
