Community Values & Honor Code

Community Values

It Is Essential to Foster a Supportive Online Learning Environment.

In our lab, we believe it is essential for all participants to exemplify and uphold our Community Values in order to foster a supportive online learning environment where individuals can have open discussion, reflect on their thinking, and learn from each other.

Our Lab’s Honor Code

A Commitment of Honor, Honesty, and Stewardship.

Our Honor Code supplements the statement of Community Values and reflects the commitment participants make as members of the learning community to participate in, foster, and uphold our Lab’s Learning Model.

That’s it!
