5 - Academic Integrity and Standards

5.1 - Academic Integrity

The College of Allied Health is committed to a culture of trust and individual accountability.  At the foundation of this culture are the principles of truth, fairness, respect, and responsibility.  Personal responsibility in all dimensions of teaching and learning result in principled people with shared standards, which assure that the allied health professions consist of practitioners with character.  The choices that practitioners make shape their character and their practice.  Consequently, in the College of Allied Health community, integrity in all aspects of professional education and personal development is a shared value.  Individual acts that are in conflict with this shared value of integrity are subject to the Academic Misconduct Code of the University of Oklahoma. Please also see Regents’ Academic Integrity policy in the OUHSC Faculty Handbook, Section 4.17.
