Academic Integrity Policy

Emmanuel College upholds the values and beliefs important to its founders, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, through it's mission of educating students in a dynamic learning community rooted in the liberal arts and sciences and shaped by strong ethical values and a Catholic academic tradition.

The College translates this mission into action through its commitment to rigorous intellectual inquiry and the pursuit of social justice in order to transform lives and make a better world. The Emmanuel College community encourages its members to share their knowledge, opinions, thoughts and experiences as this is an integral part of the educational process. An Emmanuel education develops individuals' capacities for critical thinking, ethical decision-making and contributing to the greater good. Our educational culture is characterized by values of academic integrity, ethics and trust.

Building and Sustaining a Community of Integrity and Trust
Academic integrity, ethics and trust are core values in the Emmanuel College community. These values should matter to all members of the community and should apply everywhere-in our classrooms, in the Library, in the Computer Labs, in the Student Center, in the dorms, in the cafeteria and in our offices.

 An academic community where each member of that community upholds the values of academic integrity, ethics and trust is one in which faculty members, students, administrators and staff can achieve significant goals and make meaningful contributions. In such a community, people treat each other with respect and value the intellectual and real property of other individuals and of the community as a whole.
