Academic Integrity

Principle: Absolute integrity is expected of every Winona State University (WSU) student in all academic undertakings.

Integrity entails a firm adherence to a set of values, and the values most essential to an academic community are grounded on the concept of honesty with respect to the intellectual efforts of oneself and others.

Academic integrity is expected not only in formal coursework situations, but in all University relationships and interactions connected to the educational process, including the use of University resources.

While both students and faculty of WSU assume the responsibility of maintaining and furthering these values, this document is concerned specifically with the academic conduct of students.

A WSU student's submission of work for academic credit indicates that the work is the student's own. All outside assistance should be acknowledged, and the student's academic position truthfully reported at all times.

In addition, WSU students have a right to expect academic integrity from each of their peers.
