Faculty of Arts and Science Statement on Student Discipline
New York University is a community of scholars who value free and open inquiry. Our work depends on honest assessment of ideas and their sources; and we expect all members of our community to maintain the highest integrity in their academic work. As scholars committed to the critical evaluation of ideas, free of personal prejudice, we also have an obligation to one other to create an educational atmosphere of mutual trust and respect in which differences of opinion can be subjected to deliberate and reasonable examination without animus. Because of the central importance of these values to our intellectual life together, students who fail to maintain them will be subject to academic disciplinary sanction, which may include dismissal from the University.
Academic Disciplinary offenses include but are not limited to:
- cheating, plagiarism, falsification of data or sources, forgery of academic documents in attempt to defraud;
- destruction, theft, or unauthorized use of laboratory data, or research materials.
