Academic Policies


"A university should be a model of Intellectual Honesty. As such Dalhousie University shares in the academic values of honesty, trust, respect, fairness, and responsibility (International Center for Academic Integrity, of which Dalhousie University is a member). Failure to meet the University's standards with respect to these values can result in an academic offence".

Violations of intellectual honesty are offensive to the entire academic community.
