Civility Week 2021

October 14

Civility Week banner

October 12–16

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion hosts Civility Week, a week of activities, talks, and workshops aimed at achieving the goals of FIT’s civility initiative.

The initiative is aimed at engaging our community in a discussion of respectful ways of living and learning in a higher education environment. FIT encourages our community to behave with civility. A community upholding civility respects the rights of individuals and groups. It is characterized by understanding and considerations of the differences among members of the community. The diversity of the college adds to the richness of campus life, and FIT expects all members of the community to respect both differences and commonalities.

This year’s Civility Week theme is Civility: When We Need It Most.

For a full schedule of events, visit fitnyc.edu/civilityweek.

Most of these events are for the FIT community only; however, the Diversity Comic Con, on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16, is open to the public. Visit diversitycomiccon.com for more info.
