At the University of Maryland, students and faculty together share the responsibility of academic integrity. Members of the University community believe academic dishonesty is a serious issue. As a student, you hold the responsibility to both uphold academic integrity for yourself and reporting dishonesty when you encounter or observe it.
Academic dishonesty is defined as:
1. Cheating: intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information, or study aids in any academic exercise;
2. Fabrication: intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of any information or citation in an academic exercise;
3. Facilitating academic dishonesty: intentionally or knowingly helping or attempting to help another violate any provision of this code;
4. Plagiarism: intentionally or knowingly presenting the words or ideas of another as one's own in any academic exercise.
(from the University of Maryland Undergraduate Catalog, 1999-00).
If you believe you have observed academic dishonesty, please contact the Student Honor Council at 301-314-8450, or in room 2118 Mitchell building. For more information, see www.inform.umd.edu/JPO
