Respect in the Workplace

The University of Calgary is committed to providing a workplace that respects and promotes human rights, personal dignity, and health and safety.

A respectful workplace is one that is healthy, safe, supportive and values diversity. It is a place where students and employees are valued; communication is polite and courteous; people are treated with respect; conflict is addressed in a positive and respectful manner; and disrespectful behavior, harassment, bullying, and discrimination are not tolerated.

The University and all of its employees have a responsibility to create and maintain a respectful workplace. This includes:

  • fostering respectful behavior towards others;

  • avoiding placing one's self or others at risk;

  • respecting the value of diversity in the workplace;

  • challenging disrespectful or inappropriate behavior when it occurs;

  • reporting incidents of disrespectful behavior; and

  • utilizing the Employee and Family Assistance Program, if necessary

President Cannon is strongly committed to Respect in the Workplace. Listen to President Cannon's Message on how respectful conduct is a critical component of developing the healthy, energetic and productive campus community we need to achieve our Eyes High goal.
