Truth, Even Unto Its Innermost Parts

The strength and importance of a university depends upon the commitment of students and faculty to teach and to learn, to pose challenging questions and to seek the truth.  At Brandeis University, every member of the community shares the responsibility for protecting the academic integrity of the institution. Therefore, each of us must become familiar with the guidelines for independently and honestly preparing academic work.

The mission statement of Brandeis University concludes: "The university that carries the name of the justice who stood for the rights of individuals must be distinguished by academic excellence, by truth pursued wherever it may lead and by awareness of the power and responsibilities that come with knowledge."

Students at Brandeis are expected to uphold that standard, to protect the free exchange of ideas within the academic community, and to protect the integrity of this institution and the value of a Brandeis degree.
