All written work submitted in the course of the semester should properly cite and attribute any ideas and information that are not the student’s own to the sources from which they have been derived. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism.

The Honor Pledge should accompany each piece of work submitted: “This paper represents my own work in accordance with University regulations.”
