Statement of Community Values

As revised, February 19, 2011.

The University of Mary Washington is an academic community dedicated to the highest standards of scholarship, personal integrity, responsible conduct, and respect for the individual.  We hold among our foremost common values:

  • The importance of personal integrity as reflected in adherence to the Honor Code
  • The right of every individual to be treated with dignity and respect at all times
  • The appreciation of and respect for diversity in our community and adherence to the University’s Guiding Principles on Diversity and Inclusion and the University’s Statement of Non-Discrimination
  • The freedom of intellectual inquiry in the pursuit of truth

We accept responsibility to help create the environment we strive to achieve.  We live up to these values and work to support our collective and individual successes.

As members of the University community we will not condone behavior that compromises or threatens these values.
