Pledge and Commitment Statement
We, the students of The University of Tulsa, support the University’s virtues of wisdom, faith and service by affirming that:
We strive for excellence in the pursuit of wisdom by encouraging free and open inquiry which is fundamental to the pursuit of knowledge, preserving our academic integrity by maintaining the highest ethical standards in our studies, and valuing the relationships with our professors who provide a rich learning environment.
We acknowledge the University’s foundation on a faith in God and respect the faith traditions of all individuals.
We seek opportunities for service to benefit the University and the Tulsa community as an expression of appreciation toward those who facilitate and support our education and student community.
In all we do, we seek to strengthen our community by promising to stand against behaviors and actions that breach this pledge and demean others in the campus community – students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
Through our contributions we will endeavor to leave The University of Tulsa a better community than when we entered it.
As a student of The University of Tulsa, I pledge to strive for excellence in the pursuit of wisdom, to acknowledge the University’s foundation on a faith in God while respecting the faith traditions of all individuals, and to be of service to others in accordance with the ideals set forth in the Student Commitment.
