FIRE Department Academic Integrity Policy
The faculty members of the FIRE Department value absolute honesty of effort and academic integrity above all other attributes found in our students.
The student handbook clearly spells out the possible actions that can result from cheating and/or plagiarism. They range from receiving a zero on an assignment to failing a course, to being suspended or even expelled from the University.
Violations of this policy would include, but are not limited to: using information from prior students about past examinations or papers written in any FIRE Department course, sharing information during an examination, plagiarizing a published source - including but not limited to the Internet, or copying another student's homework or quiz.
The message that the FIRE Department faculty want to convey to students is: "No grade you receive in any course will be as valuable to you as your character and reputation as an honest, ethical student, alum and business person."
