We, the ODTU community;
Accept no boundaries, nor restrictions.
Think freely and express our thoughts freely.
Have the ODTU culture that drives us all to succeed and make a difference.
Are never content with the available knowledge.
Question, investigate and create new knowledge; apply it, and share it.
Do not see our responsibility limited to our immediate surroundings.
Involve ourselves in the issues of our country and the world; seek solutions.
Such is the ODTU spirit.
Some call this spirit ‘idealist’, some call it ‘revolutionary’.
We see it as the essence of being a member of ODTU community.
It is with this spirit that, starting with our immediate surroundings, we believe, together we can change the world.
