Upholding the Garnet & Gold

The Florida State University is a diverse community with a longstanding tradition of respect for the dignity and worth of each person. While we recognize the importance of differing opinions and informed debate for a dynamic learning environment, we also expect each member of our community to embrace the values of civility and ethical conduct and share in the responsibility to promote these values.

Uphold the Garnet and Gold by demonstrating respect for yourself and others, taking responsibility for yourself and those around you, and reflecting the values of Florida State.


What is Uphold the Garnet & Gold?

Uphold the Garnet & Gold is meant to encourage civil behavior on campus and in the larger community. To Uphold the Garnet & Gold is to demonstrate the values of Florida State; good sportsmanship at athletic events, listening to and respecting different opinions, and respecting the values and views of others are just some of the ways you can Uphold the Garnet & Gold!


The Uphold the Garnet & Gold Coins

Uphold the Garnet & Gold CoinTo spread the message of Uphold the Garnet & Gold, several gold coins have been given out to various members of the University community. When these people see someone acting in a way that upholds the values of Florida State, they will give a gold coin to that person. That person in turn will then pass it on to someone else when they do something that upholds the Garnet & Gold. The goal is not to hold on to a coin, but to pass it on, and then do something to receive another one - to "pay it forward."
