Student Resources : Statement of Conduct and Code of Honor

Statement of Conduct

The College of Business is a learning community committed to a set of core values based on integrity, respect and responsibility that guide our interactions.

Integrity: the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards
Members of our community are expected to act with integrity and honesty. These qualities are essential in providing a basis for trust, and are at the foundation of what molds the character of business professionals.

Respect: to show consideration or thoughtfulness in relation to others
Our community respects the right of all people to express their ideas, beliefs, and opinions. Our relationships are based on mutual respect for one another, and differences of opinion are discussed openly and civilly. These discussions will focus on the issues, rather than attacking either party, and are presented in a courteous manner. We are sensitive to the impacts of both our words and actions on others.

Responsibility: the state, fact, or position of being accountable and responsible
We accept responsibility for our actions and the consequences resulting from them. We understand and expect those around us to hold us accountable for our dealings and behavior. We deliver on the commitments and promises we make to others.

Code of Honor

As College of Business students we pledge to uphold these standards of professionalism and conduct ourselves in accordance with them. We will not lie, cheat, or steal, and will not tolerate those who do. Our behavior defines who we are and what we will become.
