Honor Code

Honor Yourself, Honor the Code

The Honor Code is the Student code of conduct that outlines the expectations, rights, and responsibilities of every Student at the University. This document provides information to support our Students in developing and demonstrating integrity, respect, and individual and community responsibility. All Students at the University should read this Honor Code carefully to understand the expectations, policies, and procedures that apply when a Student is alleged to have violated a policy. You are expected to know and to understand your rights as well as your responsibilities to be a positive contributor and successful community member at the University.

Honor Code Community Values

All members of the University of Denver community are expected to engage both individually and as community members with Integrity, Respect, and Responsibility.

  • Integrity:

    Acting in an honest and ethical manner.

  • Respect:

    Honoring differences in people, ideas, experiences, and opinions; engaging with others in ways that demonstrate an appreciation of their rights and humanity.

  • Responsibility:

    Accepting ownership for one's actions and choices; seeking opportunities to understand one's role in creating an inclusive environment as a University Student and global citizen; and when necessary, work to repair harm, restore trust, and acknowledge the impact of one's actions and choices.
