UConn Promise

We are One UConn. We embrace and support the diversity of our community. I commit to do my part to protect the health, safety and well-being of myself and those around me. I will always seek to learn and develop myself while respecting the needs of others.

I will practice compassion, understanding, and respect. I acknowledge the harm of hateful and racist behaviors that discriminate against others. I stand aligned with our communities who have experienced greater vulnerabilities. I acknowledge that UConn is existing on Native land stewarded throughout the generations by the Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghiticoke, Golden Hill, Paugussett, Nipmuc, and Lenape Peoples.

As a member of this community, I promise to always:

  • Respect and support the wearing of masks by members of our community.
  • Stay up to date with and follow University rules regarding my health and the health of others including complying with the University Non-Academic Gathering Guidelines.
  • Respect the diversity of ideas and opinions expressed regarding global issues and seek civil discourse.
  • Be an ally for individuals who have experienced bias and discrimination.
  • If I am made aware of acts of discrimination, I will contact the Office of Institutional Equity.
  • Acknowledge that, while students, staff, and faculty will vary in how they continue to maintain connection to the University, we are all committed to One UConn and supporting each other.
