About Us

The Indiana Promise

Indiana University is a community built on the foundations of academic excellence, personal development, and social responsibility. The expectations of this community include: Engaging in rigorous intellectual inquiry and artistic creativity, recognizing each individual’s accountability for his or her own behavior, and appreciating the contributions made by all community members.

The Indiana Promise expresses the student’s commitment to these values and acknowledges the importance of the student’s active participation in the IU experience. This promise is made by students both to Indiana University and to themselves.

The Indiana Promise: I promise that I will be ethical in my academic work; I will take personal responsibility for whatever I say and do; and I will respect the dignity of others, treating them with civility and understanding.
