Guiding Principles

To respect the spirit of diversity and inclusion, we ask that submitters keep the Pitt Promise in mind when submitting work, specifically:

  • I will embrace the concept of a civil community, which abhors violence, theft, and exploitation of others.
  • I will support a culture of diversity by respecting the rights of those who differ from myself.
  • I will contribute to the development of a caring community where compassion for others and freedom of thought and expression are valued.
  • I will honor, challenge, and contribute to the scholarly heritage left by those who preceded me and work to leave this a better place for those who follow.
