Academic Integrity

Students at Anderson University are expected to conduct themselves with integrity and to be honest and forthright in their academic endeavors. Just as academic honesty is vitally important to the value of a college education, academic dishonesty is a serious offense because it diminishes the quality of academic scholarship at Anderson University and defrauds society, the institution, faculty, and other students. Additionally, academic dishonesty undermines the well-being of those who may eventually depend upon one’s knowledge and integrity. Anderson University encourages the imposition of strict penalties for academic dishonesty and does so in order to protect the integrity of the grading system and to affirm the importance of honesty, integrity and accountability in the University community. The policy on Academic Dishonesty is described in the Student Handbook. The forms of academic dishonesty addressed by this policy include plagiarism, fabrication, cheating, and academic misconduct.

PhD Honor Code


Anderson uses Turnitin anti plagiarism software. This is managed by the CIDL (Center for Innovation and Digital Learning) and is incorporated within your Canvas courses. Students submit their original papers online to Turnitin and Turnitin searches for examples of copying both within their massive database of submitted papers from across the world and on the internet as well.
