Civility Pledge I pledge to uphold high ethical standards. I will uphold myself and others to this civility pledge. I am committed to the pursuit of excellence in my personal, professional, and academic life. I will conduct myself with dignity and respect on campus, in social media, and in the global community. In my daily actions I pledge to value both the process and the results. I pledge to accept responsibility to improve the collegiate community, and uphold a positive outlook on policies set forth by my institution.
Consequences for NOT upholding the Civility Pledge 1. The student must write a 2-page paper on the importance of civility within social media, and how the college could improve social media on campus. (This paper would be submitted to Kim Brown and the MC committee. Based on the students recommendations the committee would propose new social media tactics on campus to the President. This consequence would be used for a minor offenses.) 2. The student must meet directly with the Director of Campus Communications (Kim Brown) to productively speak about the impacts of social media. (This consequence would be used for a major offenses.)

Students have the option of participating individually or in teams. Go places, do challenges, earn rewards – the idea is that the students would experience new places on campus, complete different challenges at each location to educate them and allow them to practice utilizing a new and creative form of social media. This will be facilitated by the committee, orientation, campus communications, and the SCVNGR company (www.scvngr.com).
