I. Christian and Academic Foundations At Rochester College, higher education is valued not only as a means to professional and financial success, but also as an opportunity for personal growth that is intellectual, social, moral, and spiritual. Undergirding the educational programs at Rochester College is the presupposition that the history and heritage of the institution commits everyone in the campus community to lives of integrity. Based on this fact, both faculty and students are expected to maintain academic integrity throughout the entire educational process. From a Christian perspective, academic integrity is not simply the observance of a list of rules. Rather, it is the result of seeking to reflect the character of God, which includes holiness, righteousness, faithfulness, and steadfast love. Drawing upon these divine qualities, academic integrity means the following: 1. Holiness requires that one must strive for excellence in all he/she does and not be enticed by the easier but less satisfying path of mediocrity and dishonesty. The quest for excellence is the mark of true professionalism. 2.
