Civility & Community Building

The Civility in the Workplace educational initiative began as a joint labor/management initiative in the fall of 2011.

The initiative is part of SUNY Plattsburgh’s ongoing commitment to an inclusive environment where all employees, students, parents and guests feel welcome and safe. Our goal is to make SUNY Plattsburgh the best place it can possibly be for all of us.

Research on workplace civility confirms that a civil workplace is essential for good customer service, employee retention and productivity, and overall workplace health.

Cardinals Care “You Made a Difference” Recognition Program

One of the new initiatives of the expanded program is the Cardinals Care: You Made a Difference Recognition Program. Individuals are invited to reward exceptional service above and beyond the call of duty by completing a nomination form and mailing or emailing it to the Civility and Community Building Committee. Nominated individuals will be publicized and a copy of the nomination will be forwarded to the employee. All faculty, staff and students are eligible for nomination.
