Academic Integrity Guidelines

Because academic integrity is a cornerstone of the university’s commitment to the principles of free inquiry, students are responsible for learning and upholding professional standards of research, writing, assessment, and ethics in their areas of study.

In the academic community the high value placed on truth implies a corresponding intolerance of scholastic dishonesty. Written or other work which students submit must be the product of their own efforts and must be consistent with appropriate standards of professional ethics.

Academic dishonesty, which includes cheating, plagiarism and other forms of dishonest or unethical behavior, is prohibited.
