At Queen's, the following essential values govern our actions. Above all, rigorous standards of intellectual integrity must be upheld in all teaching, learning, and research activities.
The University commits itself to remain open to free enquiry and the free expression of ideas, both of which are basic to the University's central purpose. Any restrictions proposed on free expression must be openly stated and subjected to careful public scrutiny and evaluation.
Equal dignity of all persons is fundamental to our ethos. Queen's cherishes the diversity of human experience and background, and supports the freedom of individuals to study, teach, work, and carry out research without fear of harassment, intimidation, or discrimination.
