Statement of Principles for University Community Retailers

September 1, 2001

The University of Pennsylvania is a community in which intellectual growth, learning from others, mutual tolerance, and respect for freedom of thought and expression are principles of paramount importance. As the largest private employer in Philadelphia--and the largest institution of higher education--the University of Pennsylvania is committed to creating a favorable environment for its constituents and partners.

Members of the University community are expected to exhibit responsible behavior, to be responsible for their actions, and to respect the rights of others. Responsible behavior includes:

a) Respecting the health and safety of others.

b) Ensuring fair and equitable treatment of all customers in pricing, service delivery, and any other business transactions.

c) Respecting the rights of University community members to express opinions and points of view without fear or threats.

d) Complying with all contracts made with the University.

e) Complying with federal, state, and local laws.

A civil campus environment requires the participation of all its constituents. In the same manner that the University holds high expectations for its business and retail partners, it expects that all members of the University community will treat Penn's business and retail partners with similar respect and courtesy.

If you have questions regarding this Statement of Principles, please contact the University's Division of Business Services: (215) 898-9155.
