University of Denver Honor Code
All students are expected to abide by the University of Denver Honor Code. These expectations include the application of academic integrity and honesty in your class participation, assignments, and assessments. The Honor Code can be viewed in its entirety here.
All members of the University of Denver are expected to uphold the values of Integrity, Respect, and Responsibility. These values embody the standards of conduct for students, faculty, staff, and administrators as members of the University community.
In order to foster an environment of ethical conduct in the University community, all community members are expected to take “constructive action,” that is, any effort to discuss or report any behavior contrary to the Honor Code with a neutral party. Failure to do so constitutes a violation of the DU Honor Code. Specifically, plagiarism and cheating constitute academic misconduct and can result in both a grade penalty imposed by the instructor and disciplinary action including suspension or expulsion. As part of their responsibility to uphold the Honor Code, instructors reserve the right to have papers checked for plagiarism against a database of papers submitted previously at DU, a national database of papers, and the Internet.
The standard method of communicating official information from the Daniels College of Business to its students is through email. Students are provided a DU account using the protocol of firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available here»
Conflicts of Interest, including Gifts from Students
The University of Denver requires all employees to avoid real or perceived conflicts of interest, including gifts from students.
The College places great emphasis on the safety of its students. Please respect emergency instructions, including fire alarms.
Religious Accommodations Policy
Once a student has registered for a class, the student is expected to examine the course syllabus for potential conflicts with holy days and to notify the instructor by the end of the first week of classes of any conflicts that may require an absence (including any required additional preparation/travel time). The student is also expected to remind the faculty member in advance of the missed class, and to make arrangements in advance (with the faculty member) to make up any missed work or in-class material within a reasonable amount of time. See the Religious Accommodation website for more information»
Mental Health & Wellness
As part of the University’s Culture of Care & Support, we provide campus resources to create access for you to maintain your safety, health and well-being. We understand that as a student you may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning, such as strained relationships, increased anxiety, alcohol/drug concerns depression, difficulty concentrating and/or lack of motivation. These stressful moments can impact academic performance or reduce your ability to engage. The University offers services to assist you with addressing these or ANY other concerns you may be experiencing. If you or someone you know are suffering from any challenges, you should reach out for support. You can seek confidential mental health services available on campus in the Health & Counseling Center (HCC). Another helpful resource is Student Outreach & Support (SOS), where staff work with you to connect to all the appropriate campus resources (there are many!), develop a plan of action, and guide you in navigating challenging situations. If you are concerned about one of your peers you can submit a report through our Pioneers Care System. More information about HCC, SOS, and Pioneers CARE can be found at:

Inclusive Learning Environments
In your classes, you will work together to develop a learning community that is inclusive and respectful. Our diversity may be reflected by differences in race, culture, age, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, and myriad other social identities and life experiences. The goal of inclusiveness, in a diverse community, encourages and appreciates expressions of different ideas, opinions, and beliefs, so that conversations and interactions that could potentially be divisive turn instead into opportunities for intellectual and personal enrichment.
A dedication to inclusiveness requires respecting what others say, their right to say it, and the thoughtful consideration of others’ communication. Both speaking up and listening are valuable tools for furthering thoughtful, enlightening dialogue. Respecting one another’s individual differences is critical in transforming a collection of diverse individuals into an inclusive, collaborative and excellent learning community. Core commitment shapes core expectation for behavior inside and outside of the classroom.
