Barry CARES Initiative: Promoting Civility and Respect

Barry’s Mission and Core Commitments call us to foster dignity, compassion, and respect for others. The Barry CARES Initiative operationalizes the University’s mission by embracing civil and respectful faculty, staff, and student interactions and behaviors.

The Barry CARES Feedback System promotes communication by providing an avenue for students, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, alumni, and community members to send their feedback. All are welcome to share suggestions on what we are doing well and what we can do better. This feedback helps us transform the Barry University experience.

The Thank You for Caring Message Board is a place for students, faculty, and staff to publicly recognize a faculty, staff, or student for their service excellence.

The Barry CARES initiative promotes professional development and engages students in conversations on civility and respect through:

  • Annual Open Forum for Students
  • Using the Principles of Service and observing the Core Service Standards
