Academic Integrity

In the context of a community of scholarship and faith, and anchored in a belief in the inherent dignity of each person, the students, faculty, and college staff of Stonehill College maintain an uncompromising commitment to academic integrity.

We promote a climate of intellectual and ethical integrity and vigorously uphold the fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, and responsibility while fostering an atmosphere of mutual respect within and beyond the classroom. Any violation of these basic values threatens the integrity of the educational process, the development of ideas, and the unrestricted exchange of knowledge. Therefore, we will not participate in or tolerate academic dishonesty.

All members of the College community have the responsibility to be familiar with, to support, and to abide by the College’s Academic Honor Code. This responsibility includes reporting known or suspected violations of this policy to the appropriate faculty member or to the Director of Academic Services or designee.
