The Carey Business School measures success by the way a Carey graduate stands out as an innovative business leader and exemplary citizen. The Carey community believes that honesty, integrity, and community responsibility are qualities inherent in an exemplary citizen. The objective of the Carey Business School Honor Code is to create an environment of trust among all members of the academic community while the qualities associated with success are developed in students.
The Honor Code requires that each student act with honesty and integrity in all academic and co-curricular activities and that each student endeavors to hold his or her peers to the same standard. Violations of the Honor Code include:
Lying - Lying includes, but is not limited to, knowingly communicating an untruth in order to gain an unfair academic or employment advantage or neglecting to divulge information when under the circumstances a person of integrity would be expected to disclose the matter.
Cheating - Cheating refers to any activity that gives a student an unfair academic advantage. It includes, but is not limited to, using unauthorized materials to complete an assignment; copying the work of another student, or representing another's work as one's own work; falsifying one's identity by having another person take an exam; unauthorized providing of materials or information to others during assignments or examinations. All communications, written, oral or otherwise, among students during examinations, are forbidden, as is the use of notes, books, calculators or other written material except when approved by the instructor.
Stealing – Stealing includes, but is not limited to, use of ideas, data, direct quotations, paraphrasing, or any other incorporation of the work of others not clearly referenced. Students are required to submit their own work.
Dual Submission – Dual submission includes submitting substantially similar work in more than one class without the approval of the instructors. Submitting work that was prepared for a previous class requires the approval of the current instructor. Submitting substantially similar work in concurrent classes requires approval, in advance, from each instructor.
This list is not all-inclusive, and is included for illustrative purposes.
Upon witnessing a violation of the Honor Code, a student has a moral obligation to inform the student whose conduct is believed to be in violation of the Code that the Code has been violated. Each member of the Carey community, as a person of integrity, has a personal obligation to adhere to this requirement. The student also has the right to inform a member of the faculty, and/or may submit a written complaint to the Honor Council.
Violations of this agreement are viewed as serious matters that are subject to disciplinary sanctions imposed by the Honor Council of the Carey Business School, which is composed of a fair representation of part-time and full-time MBA, MS and BS students and faculty members.
