In pursuit of this mission, we acquire, preserve, and disseminate knowledge among the members of our academic community. This community of scholars embraces knowledge in all forms and respects the intellectual property of its creators. The University acknowledges its debt to other scholars and artists and its ethical responsibility in the use of copyrighted material.
