What Kenyon College Expects From You

Your first responsibility is to know your own duties and how to do them promptly, correctly, and pleasantly. Secondly, you are expected to cooperate with management and your fellow employees and maintain a good team attitude. How you interact with fellow employees and those whom Kenyon College serves, and how you accept direction, can affect the success of your department. In turn, the performance of one department can impact the entire educational experience offered by Kenyon. Consequently, whatever your position, you have an important assignment: perform every task to the very best of your ability. The result will be better performance for Kenyon overall, and personal satisfaction for you.

You are encouraged to grasp opportunities for personal development that are offered to you. This handbook offers insight on how you can positively perform to the best of your ability to meet and exceed Kenyon College's expectations.

We strongly believe you should have the right to make your own choices in matters that concern and control your life. We believe in direct access to management. We are dedicated to making Kenyon a place where you can approach your supervisor, or any member of management, to discuss any problem or question. We expect you to voice your opinions and contribute your suggestions to improve the quality of Kenyon College. (Please take a look at the section describing the submission of suggestions.) We're all human, so please communicate with each other and with management.

Remember, you help create the healthful, pleasant and safe working conditions that Kenyon College intends for you. Your dignity and that of fellow employees, as well as that of whom we serve, is important.

Kenyon College needs your help in making each working day enjoyable and rewarding.
