I commit myself to the pursuit of knowledge and academic integrity.
I will respect the tradition of academic inquiry at the University of Nevada, Reno, its mission and its rules of conduct.
I will honor the dignity of all persons, listening to, striving to learn from and respecting the rights of those who differ from myself.
I will contribute to the development of a caring community where compassion for others and freedom of thought and expression are valued.
I will honor, challenge and contribute to the scholarly heritage left by those who preceded me and work to leave this university a better place for those to follow...academically, humanely, and globally. I will account for myself responsibly by keeping a flexible and open mind, utilizing critical skills and fairness for problem solving and leadership.
Allegiance to these ideals requires each member of the campus to refrain from and discourage behavior which threatens the freedom and respect every individual deserves.
My endorsement of these common principles is my commitment to the University of Nevada, Reno and its community of scholars.
