Academic Integrity

All graduate students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional, respectful manner in all aspects of their graduate education and in all interactions with peers, faculty, staff, and other members of the academic community. 

 Academic integrity is a universal principle in the scholarly community, and it is fundamental to the work you’ll do on this campus, as a researcher, a teacher, and as a student.  Graduate students are expected to know, understand, and comply with the Student Code of Conduct and the university’s policies on academic integrity.  The university expects all graduate students to act at all times with unwavering integrity. At UNL, you will be held to the highest standards of academic integrity.

Academic integrity at the graduate level is taken very seriously and academic misconduct, when discovered, has serious consequences. The Student Code of Conduct outlines the University’s expectations regarding academic integrity. In accordance with the established procedures as described in the Code, students who commit acts of academic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary action, and are granted due process and the right to appeal any decision.

Questions regarding the procedures for handling incidents of academic dishonesty may be directed to the Dean of Students, 106 Canfield Administration Building (0418), 472-2021, who is primarily responsible for administering the Student Code of Conduct.
