Statement on Academic Integrity

The Faculty Senate requested that the Office of the Provost develop a brief, generic statement that would reflect the University's position on academic integrity. The statement cited below was approved by the Council of Deans in response to the Senate's request. I ask that you include the statement on your syllabi so that students are aware of the policy. < electronic mail signature of Provost Robert L. Simpson, 30 August 2000. >
The University of Michigan - Dearborn values academic honesty and integrity. Each student has a responsibility to understand, accept, and comply with the university's standards of academic conduct as set forth by the Code of Academic Conduct, as well as policies established by the schools and colleges.
