Kutztown University is committed to the personal and intellectual growth of its students. The principal context in which this growth occurs is through its academics, which is dependent upon an open and honest atmosphere of positive cooperation between faculty and students. In order to maintain this atmosphere, professors must evaluate the academic performance of students fairly and students must demonstrate their mastery of subject matter honorably. Any acts of academic dishonesty by students, such as plagiarism on written papers or cheating on exams undermine the educational and ethical goals of the University for its students. Such violations are of the utmost seriousness. It is the responsibility of all students to be aware of this policy and abide by it at all times.
