"Academic Integrity is a commitment even in the face of
adversity, to five
fundamental values: honesty, trust,
fairness, respect, and responsibility.
From these values flow principles of
behavior that enable academic
communities to translate ideals into
The Center for Academic Integrity
QCC has a policy on ACADEMIC
INTEGRITY. From that policy the following is taken:
Assessment of student knowledge is a necessary part
of academic life. The educational process must provide opportunities for
students to demonstrate understanding and knowledge in each of their
courses and to have their command of subject matters and skills
evaluated fairly by the faculty. Students must be guided, therefore, by
the most rigorous standards of academic honesty in preparing all
assignments and exercises and examinations. It is essential that
everyone believe it has been done fairly. Students at the College are
expected to be honest and forthright in their academic endeavors. In
cases of doubt about ethical conduct, students should consult their
instructors. To falsify the results of one's research, to steal the
words or ideas of another, to cheat on an examination, or to allow
another to commit an act of academic dishonesty corrupts the essential
process by which knowledge is advanced. It is the official policy of the
College that all acts or attempted acts that are violations of academic
integrity be reported to the Office of Student Affairs. At the faculty
member's discretion and with the concurrence of the student or students
involved, some cases, though reported to the Office of Student Affairs,
may be resolved within the confines of the course and department. All
others will be adjudicated within the process described in the section
marked Violations of Academic Integrity.
