Relevant Excerpt

The Creed is an aspirational statement that reminds students of the importance of civil discourse while embracing mutual respect for everyone, even those we disagree with. It's not an enforceable code of conduct, nor is it intended to limit freedom of expression.


As a Carolinian ...

I will practice personal and academic integrity;

I will respect the dignity of all persons;

I will respect the rights and property of others;

I will discourage bigotry, while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas and opinions;

I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, and their need for the conditions which support their work and development.
