Students at Baruch are committed to creating and maintaining an environment dedicated to academic excellence. They are expected to observe the highest levels of academic honesty which includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, and collusion.
Academic integrity is of utmost importance to the Honors program, as an issue of fairness and necessity of nurturing honesty and education. See the Baruch College statement on Academic Honesty, the Macaulay Honors College Honors Integrity pledge and the Baruch Honors Statement on Good Standing.
Students should also acknowledge the Baruch Bearcat Commitment which affirms that they will act with Integrity, pursue Excellence, Respect others, and Engage productively.
With this Baruch College Bearcat Commitment in mind, please be reminded that Baruch College is committed to policies and practices that promote equality, equity, opportunity, and access in all of its educational programs and activities. Civility in all Baruch College online, hybrid and in-person classes and activities—and respect for the opinions of others—are essential strategies to promoting an academic environment in which everyone can learn and do their best work. In an academic environment, we must learn to disagree without being disagreeable; this means that courteous behavior and respectful discourse are required always in our Baruch College classrooms and in all our related educational programming and activities.
