Upholding Academic Integrity. That's the Power of Will.
Academic integrity is crucial at Miami University because it is directly related to how you complete your coursework and contribute to our community. It involves putting into practice the responsibility and work ethic expected of all University of Miami students and continuing those practices in your future endeavors. More than just "not cheating," upholding academic integrity is about the values demonstrated, the choices made and how they define our character. It means accountability to oneself, classmates, and faculty and preserving Miami University's core principles. Through learning, accountability, fairness, responsibility, respect, honesty, and trust, together, we can help you create sound habits for making upstanding decisions.
