Academic Integrity in the Russ College

In the Russ College, we believe that academic integrity is the foundation for good education. Academic integrity means encouraging understanding through:

  • learning as the end, not the means
  • clarifying expectations
  • mentoring
  • fair assessment

Academic integrity also includes making an effort to prevent cheating and plagiarism and challenging such instances of dishonesty when they occur. For help with an issue that can’t be found on these pages, or with an urgent problem, contact the associate dean for academics or associate dean for research, graduate studies, and planning.
