Policy Statement

Academic integrity is foundational to a Dartmouth education. All members of the Dartmouth community—faculty, staff, and students—are responsible for maintaining a culture of integrity, honesty, and respect in teaching, learning, scholarship, and creative work.

By upholding this principle, we foster an atmosphere of intellectual growth and personal development both within and beyond Dartmouth.
