What Can I Do?
Join our Respect Rep Team!
The Respect Rep team consists of a committed base of student volunteers who want to "Be the difference" and help to promote Conestoga College's Respect Campaign. Respect Reps help to lead the planning, organization and execution of several Respect-themed events throughout the academic year. Team meetings provide opportunities for personal and professional and growth related to respect, diversity and being able to more effectively understand others.
Become a Respect Leader!
Respect Leaders is a great part-time paid leadership opportunity. Our Respect Leaders help facilitate classroom presentations about Respect, coordinate events on campus, and lead our Respect Rep team.
Check out our Events!
We host a ton of Respect events on campus throughout the year. Among our most popular events include "Random Act of Kindness Day" (hosted in November with the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation), "Welcome Back Day" in January, and "Thank You Day" in April.
Our biggest event during the year is Respect Week, hosted in late February/early March. This week is a collection of numerous events and activities that celebrate respect in our campus community. The popular "Human Library" and "Clothesline Project" are a part of the weeklong celebrations that encourage our community to 'Be the difference'.
See our Respect Workshop!
Respect workshops are offered to classes to promote and foster an understanding of the diversity of students who attend Conestoga. Be sure to ask your faculty when you can expect to have the workshop if you haven't already, or you can request a workshop to be offered for a group of students when they are offered throughout the year.
Check out our Connect Leadership Workshop!
The Respect Campaign is proud to facilitate the "Respect! Reflect! Rethink!: Exploring Our Differences" workshop as part of the Connect Leadership Workshop Series. In this workshop you will learn how to recognize and respond to disrespectful behaviours and encourage others to 'Be the difference'. Attending just one workshop will appear on your college transcripts, and by attending all seven workshops, you can receive a certificate signed off by Conestoga College's President!
