All members of the University community share the responsibility for the academic standards and reputation of the University. Academic honesty is a cornerstone of the development and acquisition of knowledge. Academic honesty is a condition of continued membership in the university community.
Academic dishonesty, like other forms of dishonesty, is misrepresentation with intent to deceive or without regard to the source or the accuracy of statements or findings. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University; it is, furthermore, unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
The following examples are representative but not exhaustive of activities constituting academic dishonesty: plagiarism (presenting the work of another person as your own); submitting the same work more than once without prior approval; cheating; impersonation; submitting false records or information; stealing or destroying the work of another student; removing, mutilating, misplacing or destroying books or other library material; unauthorized or inappropriate use of computers, calculators and other forms of technology in course work, assignments or examinations.
The University code of academic honesty is contained in policy T10.02 or in the Course Timetable and Exam Schedule published every semester, or on the World Wide Web via http://www.reg.sfu.ca.
- Penalties for Acts of Academic Dishonesty
Penalties imposed by the University for academic dishonesty may include one or more of the following: a warning, a verbal or written reprimand, reassessment of work, failure on a particular assignment, failure in a course, denial of admission or readmission, forfeiture of awards or financial assistance, suspension or expulsion from the University.
Simon Fraser University is committed to creating a scholarly community characterized by civility, diversity, free inquiry, mutual respect and individual safety. The code of student conduct is intended to define students' basic responsibilities as members of the academic community, to define inappropriate student conduct and to provide procedures and penalties to be invoked and applied if they engage in such unacceptable behaviour. Each student is responsible for his/her conduct which affects the University community. The code shall not be construed to unreasonably prohibit peaceful assemblies, demonstrations or free speech.
The following activities are representative but not exhaustive of behaviours constituting misconduct: disruptive or dangerous behaviour; behaviour which results in damage, destruction and theft of University property or the property of any member of the University; forgery or alteration of University documents or records; misuse of University resources including information (computing) resources; unauthorized entry or presence in University premises; misuse of student disciplinary procedures.
The University code of student conduct is contained in policy T10.01 available in the Library or any departmental office, or in the Course Timetable and Exam Schedule published every semester, or on the World Wide Web via http://www.reg.sfu.ca.
- Penalties for Acts of Student Misconduct
Penalties imposed by the University for misconduct may include one or more of the following: a verbal or written reprimand, exclusion from specified areas of the University, restitution or other ameliorative measures, suspension or expulsion from the University.
Procedures for Academic Dishonesty and Student Misconduct
Procedures to be followed by the University in imposing a penalty for acts of academic dishonesty or acts of misconduct or an appeal therefrom are detailed in the policy establishing the university board on student discipline and the senate committee on disciplinary appeals (policy T10.03). This policy is available in the Library or any departmental office, or in the Course Timetable and Exam Schedule published every semester, or on the World Wide Web via http://www.reg.sfu.ca.
