Statement on Academic Integrity
“A fundamental tenet of all educational institutions is academic honesty; academic work
depends upon respect for and acknowledgement of the research and ideas of others.
Misrepresenting someone else's work as ones own is a serious offense in any academic setting
and it will not be condoned.
Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to, providing or
receiving assistance in a manner not authorized by the instructor in the creation of work to be
submitted for academic evaluation (e.g. papers, projects, and examinations); any attempt to
influence improperly (e.g. bribery, threats) any member of the faculty, staff, or administration of
the University in any matter pertaining to academics or research; presenting, as one's own, the
ideas or words of another for academic evaluation; doing unauthorized academic work for
which another person will receive credit or be evaluated; and presenting the same or
substantially the same papers or projects in two or more courses without the explicit permission
