2.1 - Academic Integrity

Faculty of the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences adhere to the principles in the University of Oklahoma Academic Integrity Policy found in the Faculty Handbook and College of Allied Health Student Handbook. 

Academic integrity means honesty and responsibility in the academic or clinical setting. The basic assumptions regarding student academic work at the University of Oklahoma are: 

  • Students attend the University of Oklahoma to learn and grow intellectually. 
  • Academic assignments exist to learn and grow intellectually and grades exist to show how fully the goal is attained. 
  • A student’s academic work and grades should result from the student’s own effort to learn and grow. Academic work completed any other way is pointless, and grades obtained any other way are fraudulent. 

Academic misconduct violates the assumptions at the heart of all learning. Academic misconduct destroys the mutual trust and respect that should exist between student and professor and is unfair to students who earn their grades honestly.
