Policy Spotlight: Academic Integrity

Being honest is the key to academic integrity. All Cornell students are expected to uphold academic integrity in all aspects of research and scholarship, including formal coursework as well as university relationships and interactions. If a student, staff member, or faculty member report a suspected violation, a hearing board is convened to determine if the incident was a violation and, if so, determine an appropriate penalty.

Examples of academic integrity violations:

  • Plagiarism
  • Cheating
  • Unauthorized collaboration
  • Misrepresenting yourself
