All Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University students are expected to adhere to the Honor Code and Honor Statement listed in the Student Services Handbook. Any formal academic setting relies upon high standards of honesty among its students and faculty. The University expects both faculty and students to abide by these standards in order to help fulfill the mission of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University, which is to provide an educational setting where religious and human values are respected. An important aspect of this process is academic honesty. University faculty and students are expected to apply the principle of academic honesty by consistently displaying honesty and forthrightness in their academic endeavors. Intellectual inquiry can possess value only if it is acquired and presented legitimately.
We, the student body of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University, embrace the idea that honor is an intangible quality, which, if it pervades all phases of campus life, tends to foster a spirit of dignity and personal integrity. Upon enrolling at the University, we become part of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University Honor System. We realize that honor must be cultivated and that its success depends upon the combined and cooperative efforts of the University's administration, faculty, staff and students. Inherent in the honor system is the premise that students will not perform or tolerate any violations of the Student Code of Conduct published in Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University Student Handbook. As responsible members of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University community, each of us freely accepts and proudly endorses this, our code of honor.
