As an East Carolinian,
I will carry out personal and academic integrity.
I will respect and appreciate the diversity of our people, ideas, and opinions.
I will be thoughtful and responsible in my words and actions.
I will engage in purposeful citizenship by serving as a positive role model.
Adherence to these moral principles is the obligation of every East Carolinian on- and off-campus. In doing so, our individual freedom to learn and a pledge to serve will be preserved.
