Ethics and Civic Responsibility (ECR)

The role of a university is to prepare students to function effectively and engage responsibly in both the academic community and post-graduation life.  Excellence and integrity should be academic, personal, and professional goals for everyone.  Effective and responsible living depends upon the ability of individuals to strive for excellence, to make informed and ethical decisions, to accept responsibility for one’s choices, and to practice good citizenship as part of multiple larger social units.
