Ashley Hall proudly announces the release of its Statement on Civil Discourse. “The result of a collaborative effort between faculty and administrators to articulate how we embrace honesty, responsibility, and integrity as the guiding standards for daily interaction, this document represents our continued commitment to nurturing and modeling a culture of civil discourse as integral to campus life,” said Head of School Jill Muti. “It exemplifies how we are living our mission and preparing our students to confidently meet the challenges of society as ethically responsible women.”

During this morning’s Upper School Assembly, Mrs. Muti shared the Statement on Civil Discourse with students, who will work with the document in their English class over the month of November. They will collaborate on the creation of a code of student conduct that supports the tenets set forth in the Statement on Civil Discourse. “The goal of this exercise is for students to work together to deepen their understanding and appreciation of these universal tenets of civility,” noted Mrs. Muti. “Together we commit to a culture where civil discourse is embedded into the fabric of our community.”
