New members are treated with fairness through openly-stated expectations and clear communication about new member activities

New members are treated with fairness through openly-stated expectations and clear communication about new member activities. New members experience the freedom to learn and express themselves without threat to their education or well-being. Trust is built between individuals through honesty, which strengthens interpersonal connections within an organization. Through inclusion, the new member program brings people together rather than setting up divisions between new members and other students. Existing members demonstrate respect by valuing new members’ differences and showing regard for their well-being and safety. Existing members model responsibility by demonstrating effective leadership and educating new members in a way that prevents physical or emotional harm.
