University Ethics Statement

Adopted by the WSU Board of Trustees March 28, 1997.

Wright State University's goal of excellence and its dedication to innovation in teaching, research, and service rests upon an individual and a collective commitment to ethics. The purpose of this statement is to provide general guidelines for strengthening the integrity of the university. It sets forth basic principles for enabling the university to accomplish its mission and serve the public interest in an ethical way.

This statement also identifies a basic process for integrating these principles into the institution's culture. The university expects the administration, the faculty, the staff, and the students to exemplify these principles in their words and actions. To guide the conduct of the university community, Wright State University endorses the following principles:


Members of the university community will be guided in all their activities by a high regard for truth.


Members of the university community will show concern for the individuality of others and their ideas.


Members of the university community will treat others fairly.


Members of the university community will be responsible stewards of the public trust.

To integrate these principles into the institution's culture and to encourage ethical conduct, Wright State University is committed to an ongoing process that will involve the creation of a standing advisory and resource committee to support ongoing formal ethics education and to assist the university in developing ethics policies and procedures.
