Work Ethic and the Honor System


Becoming part of an intellectual community is a privilege that comes with certain expectations. We expect you to behave with honor and integrity. Cheating on class work or exams is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in any way. Learning is not something that just happens, it requires effort. There is some truth to the adage, “What you get out of something depends on what you put into it.” We expect you to be prepared and on time for class, and in return we will dedicate ourselves to your success. We want you to accomplish your goals. If you have any questions or need individual assistance please don’t hesitate to ask. We are here to help you.
