HBU's Code of Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is expected of all students.  This means that all work being submitted for a student's grade is that student's own work and not the work of others.  This includes answers to test items, written assignments, oral presentations, etc.  Academic dishonesty such as cheating on exams, written work, oral presentations, and course assignments violates the very heart of the nature of the University as a Christian Liberal Arts Institution. It is the responsibility of all students, faculty and staff to demonstrate academic integrity.
