Rotary’s Four-Way Test
For Rotary, the Four-Way Test is the cornerstone of all action. In what they speak, think and do, Rotarians have a responsibility to continually ask…
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The test is one of the hallmarks of Rotary. Since it was developed in 1932 by Herbert J. Taylor, who later became RI president, it has never ceased to be relevant. Its four brief questions are not based on culture or religion. Instead, they are a simple checklist for ethical behavior. They transcend generations and national borders.
Rotarians strive to keep the Four-Way Test in mind in every decision, every day… endeavoring always to speak the truth, to be fair, to build goodwill and better friendships, and to do our very best in all situations.
