Academic Integrity

‌SVSU recognizes the need to foster and promote academic integrity. As President Emeritus Eric R. Gilbertson notes, “The reputation of an institution is its capital. It creates value for degrees granted. SVSU’s reputation is based on the preparedness and professionalism of its graduates. Therefore, a culture of academic integrity is fundamental to the reputation of SVSU in the community.” Faculty who promote academic integrity carry out the mission and vision of the University.
