Respect at Centennial
At Centennial College, we are committed to providing a supportive and respectful learning, living, teaching and working environment for all of our students and employees.
What is respect?
Respect is all about how you treat someone with kindness and consideration. It means showing others courtesy and understanding who they are. Respectful behaviors can include actively listening to others, resolving disagreements in a positive way, and not putting other people down. Disrespecting someone can lead to harassment, bullying and discrimination and even, in some cases, violence.
What is the #RethinkRespect Campaign?
The #RethinkRespect Campaign challenges all members of Centennial College to rethink what respect really means for our community in order to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring all students and employees are treated with respect.
Do you think you are respectful? Have you rolled your eyes when someone’s talking? Do you gossip? Could your jokes make people uncomfortable? We invite you to consider the impact of your actions and language, learn about respectful practices and speak up against disrespect. Together, we can build a community where everyone feels a sense of belonging.
Join the movement – tell us what respect means to you using hashtag #RethinkRespect
