(Redirected from U4C)
Universal Code of Conduct

The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) is described in the Enforcement Guidelines as:

a co-equal body with other high-level decision making bodies (e.g. ArbComs and AffCom). Its purpose is to serve as final recourse in the case of systemic failures by local groups to enforce the UCoC. The U4C’s membership shall be reflective of the global and diverse makeup of our global community.

The U4C is responsible for organizing the annual review of the Universal Code of Conduct and its Enforcement Guidelines.

Charter

The U4C Charter outlines the policies, procedures and processes that will guide the U4C’s work.

The Charter outline the organization of the Committee, including the purpose and scope of the Committee’s work, its responsibilities and eligibility and election processes for Committee members.

Following sections cover the internal expectations around conduct, recusal and the transparency and confidentiality of the Committee’s work. The remaining sections cover the processes to monitor, review and support the UCoC and Enforcement Guidelines. The sections cover providing tools and training for the community to use with the UCoC and Enforcement Guidelines as well as how the U4C will engage and interact with the Wikimedia Foundation and other movement government structures.
