IPFW regulations governing the actions of students are intended to enhance the values that must be maintained in the pursuit of IPFW's mission and goals. These values include freedom of inquiry, intellectual honesty, freedom for the open expression of ideas and opinions within limits that protect the rights of others, and respect for the views and the dignity of other persons.
In exercising their rights, students must bear responsibility to act in accordance with local, state, and national laws, and IPFW rules. No right should be construed as enabling students to infringe upon the individual rights of another member of the academic community.
