It is important in each University role that we foster a commitment to community, work collaboratively, and take responsibility for excellence. With the University's guiding mission, our commitment to work together to serve our constituencies, and our resolve to make decisions that benefit the University, each person will incorporate professional standards into his or her daily work experiences.
It is imperative for each employee to remember that attitude and conduct are significant factors in work performance. It is the responsibility of every employee to be courteous to co-workers and to every person who visits our campus. Conduct has a direct bearing on the general public's opinion of the University; therefore, it is crucial that employees respect the rights of others and conduct themselves in a professional manner.
Personal neatness and appropriate attire are left largely to the discretion and mature judgment of the employee. Supervisors and department heads may establish minimum requirements for attire appropriate to tasks and working conditions, since an employee's appearance reflects upon the image of the University.
