Kennesaw State Owl Creed


Developed by the KSU Student Human Relations Task Force, 1998

The community of Kennesaw State University is steadfast in its commitment to academic excellence and personal integrity. Members of the Kennesaw State University community are obligated to a practice of civilized behavior. Choosing to become a member of this community proclaims the acceptance of KSU's Creed as suggested by the following ideals.

 

I WILL ALWAYS STRIVE FOR PERSONAL AND ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.

This statement pledges a commitment to eliminate cheating, lying, disloyalty, and infidelity in all academic, athletic, social and personal relationships.

 

I WILL ALWAYS RESPECT THE RIGHTS, FEELINGS AND PROPERTY OF OTHERS.

This statement pledges a commitment to eliminate the violation of any individual's or group's rights to freely express themselves in an appropriate way to eliminate libel, slander, malicious vandalism, theft, arson, and destruction of property.

 

I WILL ALWAYS ENCOURAGE UNITY BY APPRECIATING THE DIFFERENCES IN PEOPLE AND THEIR IDEAS.

This statement pledges a commitment to the appreciation and recognition of others regardless of their age, gender, race, ethnic heritage, national origins, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic level, political or religious affiliation or disaffiliation, this statement also supports the idea that we can learn from the differences in our community.

 

I WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE IDEAS SUGGESTED AND DETER ANY BEHAVIOR THAT THREATENS THE RIGHTS OF ANY KSU MEMBER.

All KSU community members are obligated not only to support the ideals suggested but also to confront and discourage inappropriate behaviors wherever and whenever they are encountered.

 

I WILL ALWAYS STRIVE TO CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE WHERE IDEALS WILL DEVELOP AN ACADEMIC AND SOCIAL COMMUNITY THAT IS CIVILIZED, REWARDING AND DYNAMIC AT KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY.

The students of Kennesaw State University challenge all campus members to establish and uphold a standard of excellence in responsibility and behavior in all aspects of life by adopting the ideals in this Creed.
