To promote a positive, collegial atmosphere among students, faculty, and staff, University of Maryland Global Campus has developed the following code of civility:

Code of Civility


Treat all students, faculty, and staff with respect and in a professional and courteous manner at all times, whether in person or in written communication (including e-mail).


Refrain from using profanities, insults, or other disparaging remarks.


Endeavor to cite only the truth and not knowingly misrepresent, mischaracterize, or misquote information received from others.


Take responsibility for your own actions instead of blaming others.


Work together with other students, faculty, and staff in a spirit of cooperation toward our common goals of seeking and providing a quality education.


Strive to uphold the right to privacy and not talk about others.


Respect the differences in people and their ideas and opinions and reject bigotry.
