Cardinal Pledge

I will pursue all of my endeavors with honor and integrity to advance the discovery of truth, mutual understanding, self-realization and the common good.

I will take personal responsibility for my actions and stand for what is right.

I will respect the dignity of others, treating them with civility, courtesy, and compassion as I carry out the UIW Mission.
