Eastern Oregon University is dedicated to a campus culture that upholds the highest standards of individual, interpersonal and academic excellence. The college experience involves a fusion of the learning process with the development of positive attitudes and standards of behavior. In addition to growing intellectually and academically, students should form attitudes of scholarship, personal responsibility, and respect for others by:
* Exemplifying personal and academic integrity;
* Respecting the dignity, rights and property of all persons;
* Opposing bigotry and prejudice and striving to be open to differences in people, ideas and opinions, encouraging community support of these differences;
* Demonstrating concern for others, their safety and their need for conditions which support their work and development.
Commitment to these ideals requires students to refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.
