Academic integrity is a crucial value of the college. Although it includes the absence of academic dishonesty, it is much more than that.
If you’re a student, we hope you will consider how you can give generous credit to the people who have helped you; make every effort to accurately represent opposing views in your essays; cite your sources; reach out to professors when you feel like you can’t succeed; abide by course rules regarding collaboration on assignments, projects, and take-home exams; and, finally, that you will help your peers do the right thing even when it’s difficult.
If you’re a professor, we hope you’ll discuss academic integrity with your classes; clearly state your expectations regarding collaboration and citations; explain the reasons for your policies; remind students of the help available to them when they’re struggling; and, finally, that you’ll consider how you might structure your classes so that students are trained in making ethical choices rather than unethical choices.
The Academic Integrity Coordinator is available to discuss academic integrity and academic dishonesty issues – students and faculty are encouraged to reach out with ideas or questions!
