Academic integrity is a fundamental principle underlying all scholarly work, and a necessity for the creation of an honest and positive learning environment. Accordingly, adherence to the basic precepts of academic integrity is expected in all student work. The dishonest representation of someone else's work as your own (i.e. cheating, plagiarism) will not be tolerated, nor will acts of deception or falsification. Acknowledgment in your written work of information, points of view, and quotes taken from other sources should always be made through appropriate references (i.e. footnotes, bibliography). Violations of academic integrity will be dealt with in accordance with the policies of the University.
