Inclusion leads to Ethical Behavior
UIC promotes ethical behavior at UNT, which is a community of vast diversity. Effective encouragement of ethical behavior becomes possible when individuals feel they are treated fairly based on their innate human dignity. Therefore, UIC will approach our constituency with decency and a mindset attentive to valuing differences and empowering everyone to participate meaningfully and equitably in protecting UNT’s integrity. We will treat all individuals with the respect and dignity they deserve and welcome all into our family.
