Hough Hall Policy Statement

Protect & Respect Hough Hall

The Big Picture

  • This is your business school — created just for you — respect and care for it
  • Treat Hough Hall as you would a corporate office at your ideal job / company
  • Embrace “Leave no Trace” philosophy (we are a LEED building after all!)
    • Always leave space better than you found it
  • Impression management is critical — faculty, student peers, recruiters & prospective students
  • Hold your fellow Hough student peers accountable for their actions
    • Self policing can go a long way toward eliminating issues
    • Report violators to your program office

Failure to comply with policies will result in loss of Hough Hall privileges (after hours and breakout room access).
