Your heart beats to the tune of bagpipes and your brain hums with innovation. You’ve got Tartan Soul. Four qualities that show the world you’re a Highlander: Integrity, Accountability, Excellence and Respect. To demonstrate your Tartan Soul, you must act with integrity; be accountable individually and to others for your ethical conduct; strive for excellence; and respect the rights and dignity of others.
As a UCR student, you’ve always exhibited these values. (You wouldn’t have been accepted to UCR if you hadn’t!) But as you mature and take on more responsibility, you’re going to see how adhering to these important values – the “core four” of Tartan Soul – will help you to earn the trust and respect of others, work more effectively and efficiently, and succeed in ways you never imagined.
