The Urshan Honor Code represents the Urshan culture and set the expectations for every member of the Urshan Community. The Honor Code communicates values we hold sacred, principles we seek to prioritize, and practices we commit to apply as we pursue honesty, integrity, and and a lifetime of biblical discipleship.
The Urshan Honor Code is rooted in specific character values from Scripture and reflects the message of Micah 6:8,“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
The Urshan Honor Code is the highest obligation of the entire Urshan Community. Every member of the Urshan Community is Honor Bound:
To do what is good:
Promote and uphold the Christ-like values of honesty, honor, integrity, and love for others.
To do justly:
Uphold academic integrity regarding cheating and plagiarism. Embrace honesty and the pursuit of truth in communication. Embrace sexual purity.
To love mercy:
Model behavior that fosters a safe and peaceful environment. Compassionately confront any person you believe to be in violation of the Honor Code. Inform the appropriate community authority if unresolved (Matthew 18:15-20).
To walk humbly with your God:
Display selfless service and Christ-like humility.
