Commitment to Personal Integrity

As members of the UW-Whitewater community we are subject to the highest standards of personal integrity. Personal integrity is reflected by our respect of the dignity and privacy of others and our adherence to standards of intellectual integrity.

Members of the UW-Whitewater community have a responsibility to promote and a right to expect:

  1. That all members will perform to the utmost of their abilities in an honest and sincere manner. Cheating, plagiarism, and the use of unauthorized materials is dishonest and a violation of our community's trust. The misrepresentation of our work in any manner threatens the spirit of community. In giving credit for others' contributions and taking credit for our own when appropriate, we can celebrate each others' ideas.
  2. That the privacy of personal records will be maintained in accordance with legal statutes and our ethical responsibilities.
  3. That all members have access to a fair and timely hearing, and a resolution of grievances and complaints.
