Business Honor Code CeremonyOhio Northern University's James F. Dicke of College Business Administration has adopted a student honor code. A committee of two business professors and four students formulated the code over the course of the summer, and the business faculty formally approved the ethics code in September.

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Robert Cupp, BA '73, AA '71, JD '76, presided over a swearing-in ceremony in which all freshmen in the College of Business Administration committed to the honor code. This ceremony took place in the Dicke Forum at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2008.

"I highly commend the students and faculty for establishing this honor code," Cupp said. "I am confident the students will adhere to these high ideals and standards, and it will benefit them as they make their way through school and in pursuing a career."

The honor code details how the college is committed to developing global leaders by instilling the values of integrity, leadership, teamwork, continuous improvement and community service.

Commenting on the code, Dean James F. Fenton stated, "The College of Business Administration, as a part of the academic community at Ohio Northern University, is values based and commits itself to developing graduates who are respectful, responsible, truthful and committed to doing what is right with respect to people and society. The honor code we have developed and approved reinforces the fact that we are a values-based institution of higher education."
