Academic Honor Code
“The integrity of Newcomb College and Tulane College is based on the absolute honesty of the entire community in all academic endeavors. As part of the community, students have certain responsibilities regarding all independent work that forms the basis for the evaluation of their academic achievement. Students are expected to familiarize themselves in a manner that complies with it at all times. The scholarly community of the university depends on the willingness of both faculty and students to uphold the honor code. When a violation of the honor code is observed it is the duty of every member of the academic community who has evidence of the violation to take action. Students should take steps to uphold the honor code by reporting any possible offense to the instructor or the honor board. Students should under no circumstances tolerate any form of academic dishonesty.” For further information, point your browser at http://www.tulane.edu/%7Ejruscher/dept/Honor.Code.html .
Violations of the Academic Honor Code will not be tolerated in this class. I will rigorously investigate and pursue any such transgression.
