Respect & Trust
- You have joined an online community that is built on the
principles of respect and trust. Your personal and academic growth, as well as
that of the community, is entirely dependent on interactions with others. Thus,
you should cultivate and encourage interaction by respecting all members of the
community, regardless to how they might be different from you.
- We expect you to always respect the rights of others, just as others are expected to be respectful of your rights. We also trust that you will not misuse the freedom and privileges that accompany being a member of this community. Trust implies that you will accept responsibility for your own actions and for your own personal growth. As a member of the community, you are expected to earn the trust of others by demonstrating a commitment to honesty and integrity in all of your pursuits.
