Academic Integrity

Dear Stern College Students:

Academic integrity is at the core of all intellectual pursuits. We outline here the university-wide policy on academic integrity that was adopted in December 2018 and updated in June 2020.  It provides a clear definition of what is considered cheating and plagiarism and sets forth penalties for those who do not live up to these standards in class assignments and exams. As you will find in reading this statement of policy, the penalties for violating academic integrity standards are severe. For your part, you are responsible for knowing and abiding by the detailed policy outlined below. As dean of Stern College, I am responsible for enforcing these guidelines. I look forward to working with you to ensure that Stern College is a model of academic integrity for the larger Jewish and academic communities.

Sincerely,
Karen Bacon
