Academic Integrity

CALS adheres to the university guidelines regarding academic integrity including the establishment of an Academic Integrity Hearing Board.  The Academic Integrity Hearing Board for CALS consists of five elected faculty members, six-ten elected student members, Assistant Director in the Office of Student Services, Kerri Lai, who serves as Secretary and Record Keeper, and the chair of the CALS Academic Integrity Hearing Board, djc6 [at] (Debbie Cherney), appointed by the Dean of the college.

Absolute integrity is expected of every Cornell student, faculty, and staff in all undertakings. Integrity entails a firm adherence to a set of values, and the values most essential to an academic community are grounded on the concept of honesty with respect to the intellectual efforts of oneself and others. Academic integrity is expected not only in formal course work but in all university relationships and interactions, including the use of university resources. Students, faculty, and staff assume the responsibility of maintaining and furthering these values.

Please visit the faculty’s University’s Academic Integrity page for more information.
