University of Southern Indiana

USI Creed

Member of the USI community...


I will practice personal and academic integrity; I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions;


I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development;


Allegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.



The University of Southern Indiana is a diverse community devoted to preparing students to become better students.  Each member of the community is obligated to a code of civil behavior.  If you experience or observe actions on capus which are not in acordance with the USI Creed, please contact the Dean of Students Office at 812/464-1862.
