Academic Integrity

 The Honor Code Lives Here

Honor and personal integrity are core values at the University of Mary Washington.  We aspire to create a community of trust among our students, faculty, and staff in which a spirit of respect and free inquiry are cherished.

Working together with our student-run Honor System, the faculty and administration are committed to authentic learning in our disciplines and to helping our students develop their own personal integrity.  On the pages in this site you will find

  • Our policies and procedures relating to our Honor System
  • A statement of our learning goals for Academic Integrity at UMW
  • Resources for students and faculty to support authentic learning
  • Practical information for students and faculty about the Honor System

We hope you find this information useful.
