The Dartmouth Pledge

As a member of the Dartmouth community

I hold myself to the highest standards of learning, teaching, service, and scholarship. I will conduct myself with integrity, in all matters.

As a citizen of this community, I accept several responsibilities

  • I am responsible for my own education.
  • I will read, understand, and uphold the Academic Honor Principle.
  • I will contribute to this community and conduct myself, here and in the wider world, in a manner worthy of my education.

I affirm that in the Dartmouth community

  • We learn together.
  • We teach one another.
  • We create knowledge together.
  • We treat ourselves and each other with dignity and respect.
  • We recognize that our diverse backgrounds broaden our understanding of the world.
  • We appreciate that an honest and civil exchange of ideas — especially conflicting ones — strengthens our intellect and makes for an inclusive community.
