"Emerging on this campus is an opportunity to reconsider how we interact and view all members of the campus community."

"I hope that people on campus will first be seen as multidimensional humans rather than outsiders, strangers, experts and novices—as bodies filling institutionally constructed roles. By creating and engaging in spaces where multiple campus actors share a common purpose and may act together on equal terms, such as the KHHC panel and within teaching and learning partnerships, I believe the SSEP can foster an ethic of mutual respect and promote shared participation in the educational mission of the College." - From Civic Matters Issue #2, Reflections on Partnership, Mutual Respect, and Community.
