According to The Center for Academic Integrity, "academic integrity is a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility.  From these values flow principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals into action" (The Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity, Oct. 1999).
Cazenovia College encourages the entire campus community to:
  • Move beyond what is prohibited (a list of do’s and don’ts) to a belief in ideals;
  • Subscribe to a culture of honor / sense of value and intellectual integrity;
  • Get the most out of your education – truly and truthfully learn;
  • Accept responsibility, encourage academic honesty (yourself and others); and
  • Be empowered to learn in an ethical environment … the value of your degree will be greater!
