Kindness--it's a simple concept, really, but one we too often take for granted. The Month of Kindness is a University-wide event dedicated to spreading kindness throughout the community. The Month of Kindness will promote involvement in the University community by promoting events from a wide range of student and community organizations. These events will allow us to reach out to others and improve our relationships with them. The Month of Kindness also hopes to raise awareness of the simple ways in which we can all show kindness to others every day, thus making their lives--and ours--a little better.

Kindness
Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
