Code of Academic Integrity
Academic Integrity is one of the highest standards to which students, faculty, and staff should adhere. The Code of Academic Integrity, which upholds the values of honesty and integrity, advances the basic principle of honest representation in students’ work. Faculty members are responsible for making students aware of the Code of Academic Integrity at the beginning of every term (via a statement on the syllabus, Canvas site, or first-day presentation). It is the student’s responsibility to know, understand, and be conversant with the tenets and sanctions associated with a violation of the Code of Academic Integrity. Lack of awareness of the policy shall not be considered a defense against the allegation of plagiarism, cheating, or a Testing Center violation. The College shall maintain responsibility for providing information about the Code of Academic Integrity through its student onboarding processes, and faculty orientation/professional development programs.
