One of the four Penn State Principles, academic intergrity is defined by the Faculty Senate as “the pursuit of scholarly activity in an open, honest and responsible manner." Academic integrity is a basic guiding principle for all academic activity at Penn State, and all members of the University community are expected to act in accordance with this principle.
Consistent with this expectation, the University's Code of Conduct states that all students should act with personal integrity, respect other students' dignity, rights and property, and help create and maintain an environment in which all can succeed through the fruits of their efforts.
