STUDENT CORE VALUES STATEMENT AND
ETHICAL CONDUCT PLEDGE
The College of Business and Economics at
Students in the
Student Core Values:
Treat our classmates, professors, staff, and administrators with respect. We respect diversity and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, or other characteristics. We respect different points of view that add to our knowledge. We respect our learning opportunities by behaving professionally in the classroom, and making academic achievement an important priority.
Communicate truthfully with our classmates, professors, staff, and administrators in all academic matters while remaining respectful. We observe university policies on academic dishonesty in completing all academic work. In seeking employment, internships, and other opportunities we represent ourselves truthfully, understanding that misrepresentation may not only harm our own reputation but that of our classmates and the college.
Maintain integrity. Because we zealously integrate these core values into our academic work and preparation for our profession, our integrity enables us to reach our goals, overcome obstacles, and successfully resolve ethical dilemmas.
Strive for success as students, professionals, and citizens. We keep our promises, and adhere to our core values in all our activities both as students and alumni. We are committed to acting honestly, respectfully, and responsibly in our effort to achieve our goals. We understand that commitment to our core values benefits both students and the community now and in the future.
Embrace the responsibility we have to ourselves and to each other to maintain high ethical standards. With each task at hand comes the responsibility to uphold the core values that unite us. We support each other in our adherence to these standards. We recognize that reporting unethical conduct is a responsibility we all share.
I pledge to join my classmates in upholding these core values.
