To aid in adhering to the University’s Plagiarism Policy (which can be found in the General Section of the Student Manual), the School of Arts and Sciences has adopted “The Three Pillars”:

  1. Honor Code
  2. Avoidance
  3. Detection

Students are instructed in protocols for the conduct of research and styles of referencing to ensure that every statement that is NOT the product of students’ original thought is appropriately and accurately cited. The University offers means by which faculty members might seek confirmation of suspicion that students’ work is plagiarized.
