Message from the Dean 

The importance of ethical and academic integrity at Fairfield University cannot be overstated. We value the production of new knowledge within all the academic disciplines, and our faculty members offer students many opportunities to present their research in academic and creative communication. They also train them according to the highest professional standards. At Fairfield University, we believe your education should be guided by ethical principles, leading to the search for truth and justice, in your professional lives. 

As a graduate student, you are responsible to present your research in a way that acknowledges your being part of a scholarly community. To learn and respect the endeavors of others, to treat their ideas as their own, is a hallmark of Jesuit education. I hope the insights of this academic integrity tutorial will allow you to understand both the professional and ethical standards of our school. As a community, we dignify the memory of St. Ignatius by supporting each other in a humane, respectful way.

Dr. Richard Greenwald
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences
