Promoting Academic Integrity
Responsibilities of Academic Integrity
The Lehigh community considers the promotion of academic integrity a fundamental responsibility. Statements issued by Undergraduate and Graduate Student Senates articulate the understanding of the importance of this responsibility by the student community. Faculty understand that academic integrity is foundational to the methods and processes used to educate students.
