Academic Responsibility at Bucknell
Bucknell University is an academic community that assumes personal and professional integrity on the part of all its members. The university’s policies and procedures regarding academic responsibility were designed in accordance with our commitment to the five fundamental values that define academic integrity according to Duke University's Center for Academic Integrity: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility.
These values are inscribed in the Bucknell University Honor Code, which was adopted in spring of 2005. Supporting these values in word and deed is the responsibility of each member of the community and alleged acts of academic misconduct should be taken seriously and dealt with according to the university’s policy.
