Preserving academic integrity

The need

Arizona State University is an institution that places a high emphasis on values and ethics. As a member of the ASU community, you have a duty to uphold the standards of excellence that compromise the New American University. Among these standards is the notion of academic integrity.

Academic Integrity simply involves students making the right decisions to earn and preserve their achievements in the classroom. It involves being a great leader and exemplary member of the ASU family. All individuals, regardless of their role within the community, are expected to act with the fullest integrity in regards to their educational endeavors.
