To practice academic integrity means to apply an honest, responsible, and fair approach to academic work. Academic integrity is important for the wellbeing of students, faculty, and the university as a whole. Academic dishonesty or academic misconduct is defined by the Spalding University 2022-2023 Catalog as "academic lying, stealing, or cheating for the purpose of affecting one's grade, course credit, or status." Policies on both academic integrity and dishonesty are detailed more thoroughly in the annual Spalding University Catalog.
Below are links to resources that outline Spalding's policies on academic integrity in depth and describe Spalding's commitment to integrity in all areas of life.
