Respect@Conestoga acknowledges that we're a community that strives to be respectful, welcoming and inclusive to all. We are proud of our community's diversity and our learning environment is enriched by various backgrounds and abilities.
Respect is the understanding that we share a common community and a behaviour of civility that we all value. Through leadership and positive role modeling, we have the opportunity to impact those around us:
- We have the ability to agree and disagree civilly;
- We consider the needs and rights of all people in the college community;
- We do not allow any excuse for disrespect.
One of our first steps of Respect@Conestoga is to acknowledge that we are located on the traditional territory of the Anishnawbe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples.
As it relates to Indigenous culture, respect is a traditional concept built into the seven natural laws and seven sacred grandfather teachings.
