The Honor Code allows academic integrity to flourish by recognizing the importance of trust, respect and responsibility.

Students are expected to follow the Honor Code by not participating in academic dishonesty, which can include plagiarism, cheating or helping another student gain an unfair advantage. But when students are new to college, overwhelmed by the new environment or in a rush to get things done, they may unintentionally engage in academic dishonesty. There are things faculty and staff can do proactively to help ensure that students are not making these mistakes.
