Field school participants should remember the three Rs that guide our work and actions.
Respect: Please respect the community, our collaborators and colleagues.
Responsibility: We are responsible for our actions and our work. Diligent work and delivery of promises is our responsibility.
Reflexivity: Always question our actions and examine how our actions impact society and conversely, how social forces impact our actions.
