Academic Integrity

Updated: September 9, 2014

Academic integrity is a fundamental value upon which schools, colleges, and universities are built. Students, faculty and staff are expected to contribute candid opinions, reviews and assessments of research and other academic exercises that are vital to sustaining the discussion and exchange of ideas. This conversation stimulates intellectual growth and development among the community and its members. For learning and scholarship to thrive, academic communities cannot tolerate acts of academic dishonesty, such as cheating, misrepresentation or plagiarism.
