Standards of Excellence

For the university to achieve its mission of excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship, every employee must share responsibility for specific standards that promote excellence. These standards, as defined by university officers, identify the basic requirements for a productive work environment. The standards include such relevant issues as ethics, leadership, non-discrimination, and safety, as well as other topics that provide the foundation for a university community in which positive employee relations can flourish. Management and employees share the responsibility for complying and promoting these standards throughout the university community.
