Strategic Planning Committee
IU Northwest Statement of Principles
The central functions of the Indiana University Northwest community are learning, teaching, and scholarship requiring reasoned discourse, intellectual honesty, mutual respect, openness to constructive change and the assurance of an ethical climate. All members of the IU Northwest community are important to these functions and entitled to equal respect. By accepting membership in this community, an individual neither surrenders rights nor escapes fundamental responsibilities as a citizen, but acquires additional rights as well as responsibilities to the entire University community. This membership encourages active participation while acknowledging how easily a university community can be violated. The campus community is committed to providing an environment where all voices can be heard, that grows, cultivates, and enhances respect, and offers a mechanism to resolve disputes.
