How does WPI support Academic Integrity?
As a community of scholars, WPI prides itself on maintaining the highest level of academic integrity. WPI articulates this core value through the Student Code of Conduct. Students, faculty and administrative staff are expected to be familiar with the tenets of the Academic Honesty Policy as well as with the associated procedures for determining and responding to acts of academic dishonesty.
Toward this end, the Dean of Students Office, which is charged with developing and articulating policies and procedures associated with WPI's conduct system, has developed this web site as a resource for faculty and students to:
- become familiar with the WPI Academic Honesty Policy;
- learn about what constitutes a violation of WPI's Academic Honesty Policy;
- understand the procedure for filing academic dishonesty charges; and
- consider practices that discourage academic dishonesty in the classroom.
