USI Creed

My Campus Directory

As a member of the USI community...

These people are now a part of my campus family:

• I will practice personal and academic integrity; • I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions; • I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development. •A  llegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves. The University of Southern Indiana is a diverse community devoted to preparing students to become better citizens. Each member of this community is obligated to a code of civil behavior. If you experience or observe actions on campus which are not in accordance with the USI Creed, contact the Dean of Students Office.

USI Creed

My Campus Directory

As a member of the USI community...

These people are now a part of my campus family:

• I will practice personal and academic integrity; • I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions; • I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development. •A  llegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves. The University of Southern Indiana is a diverse community devoted to preparing students to become better citizens. Each member of this community is obligated to a code of civil behavior. If you experience or observe actions on campus which are not in accordance with the USI Creed, contact the Dean of Students Office.
