As Vols, we take pride in creating a culture that respects every member of our community.

In 2011, the university embraced ten principles of civility and community: respect, dialogue, collegiality, inclusivity, knowledge, integrity, learning, awareness, diversity, and response.

Learn more about these principles and watch the new civility video, “Because We’re Vols.”

Each Volunteer brings unique characteristics, ideas, perspectives, and beliefs that make for a rich community where learning from and with each other is valuable.

Help us to cultivate an environment where all community members and points of view are valued and respected.
