Academic Integrity

Academic Honor Code at Hofstra

Hofstra University has been committed to academic integrity from the days of its founding in 1935. In the spring of 2012, the University community affirmed a new expression of commitment by instituting the Hofstra University Honor Code. The Honor Code is a statement of shared values that was adopted by vote of the Full Faculty, the Student Government Association, and President Rabinowitz. The Honor Code was formally announced in September 2013.

Students wishing to help promote and implement the Honor Code are welcome to apply to be on the Honor Board by emailing Provost[at]Hofstra.edu at any time during the year.

I understand that I am accountable for everything I say and write. I will not misrepresent my academic work, nor will I give or receive unauthorized assistance for academic work. I agree to respect the rights of all members of the Hofstra community. I will be guided by the values expressed in the P.R.I.D.E Principles.
