Use this guide to navigate issues of academic integrity and scholarly communication.

What is Academic Integrity?

Academic work is ​a shared enterprise that depends on a commitment to truthfulness.

SLC students are expected to abide by the standards of intellectual integrity that govern the broader academic community to which the College belongs:

1. The origin of the ideas, data, and forms of expression that one employs in one’s own work

2. Giving due credit to the sources from which one has borrowed and

3. Affording one’s reader a means of consulting those sources directly
