Style

Academic honesty and integrity are vital elements of a dynamic academic institution. The responsibility for ethical conduct rests with each individual member of the academic community. Alleged academic misconduct shall be dealt with through provisions of the "UCCS Academic Honor Code."

Historically, student academic honor codes have provided the proper direction for the maintenance of high academic standards in universities across the United States. Where standards do not exist or are ignored, faculty members are defrauded, students are treated unfairly, and society itself is poorly served. Although the supervision of these standards is principally the task of faculty, the responsibility for maintaining standards is shared by all members of the academic community.
