Preamble

The UW-Whitewater faculty, staff, and students acknowledge that the highest priority of this institution is an ongoing commitment to continuous enhancement of each others' intellectual and personal development. This includes dedication to an open and honest exchange of ideas; immersion in the learning experience every day; acceptance of the highest standards of personal integrity; and openness to new opportunities that will expand individual horizons.

As citizens within this community, we expect to work towards our intellectual and personal goals in a fashion that adds to the campus-wide pursuit of excellence and fosters our ability to view life as an ongoing process of education. We will collaborate to create a respectful atmosphere in which the organized, thoughtful and honest pursuit of knowledge can thrive.
