Academic Integrity & You

The Academic Integrity Initiative

The Academic Integrity Initiative is a student-led, faculty-supported program that works closely with the Honor Code Council, the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, college deans, academic departments, Associated Student Government (ASG), and university administration to:

  • Create a culture of academic integrity on campus
  • Reduce student cheating
  • Inform students about allegations of Honor Code violations and processes to address allegations
  • Support faculty in detecting and reporting dishonesty


Texas State University is a member in good standing with the International Center for Academic Integrity.

Academic Integrity is the bedrock of the educational enterprise

At Texas State University, we train the next generation of citizens, and society demands that our graduates be ethical, accountable and respectful.

WE ARE BOBCATS: We Are Academically Successful

  • We go to class
  • We are prepared
  • We follow the Honor Code

As a Bobcat, you share responsibility for academic integrity

You're responsible for:

  • Completing your academic assignments according to the expectations of each individual instructor
  • Learning and demonstrating your individual level of competence through each assignment so the instructor can evaluate and certify your knowledge and abilities
  • Ensuring that you're honest, transparent and accountable in all your student activities

The Texas State University academic community constructs new knowledge and invents solutions to the world's problems, and society trusts that we do this in morally responsible ways with the utmost transparency, fairness and responsibility.

Without integrity, we fail to meet those expectations, the reputation of Texas State is threatened, and the value of your degree is diminished.
