code of community responsibility

Dishonesty

Honesty is a foundation for positive relationships that allow for learning to occur. When students make dishonest representations to the college or its officials, it is a violation of the Code. These violations can occur in and out of the classroom. Such violations include, but are not limited to:

  • plagiarism;

  • cheating;

  • falsifying data;

  • using another person's College ID or parking permit or knowingly permitting another to use one's College ID or parking permit;

  • knowingly furnishing false information to a college official or hearing panel; or

  • forgery (falsifying a signature or any document for fraudulent purposes)

Such violations fall under the jurisdiction of either the associate dean of students and director of citizenship education or the academic dean, depending on the context in which they occur. (See also Academic Honesty)
