[From Guiding Principles] As a residential liberal arts institution, Willamette University is committed to the ideals of both individual autonomy and community citizenship. This means that we recognize and seek to balance the rightful claims of personal freedom and privacy with the needs of membership in the campus at large. We understand students to be citizens of the Willamette academic community, having responsibilities to the whole in addition to rights as individuals. In particular, citizenship flourishes when members of the community live by standards of conduct that embody the ideals of honesty, integrity, civility and mutual respect. As a community of learning, dedicated to open inquiry, we must consistently work to put these ideals into practice.
