SYLLABUS POLICY STATEMENTS & STUDENT RESOURCES for ALL COURSES
I. HONOR CODE
To support the goal of maintaining a climate of academic integrity, Texas State University has adopted the Texas State University Honor Code. The Honor Code applies to all academic activities and academic work, whether these take place on-campus, off-campus, or online. Texas State expects students to engage in all academic pursuits in a manner that is beyond reproach. Students found in violation of the Honor Code are subject to disciplinary action.
As members of a community dedicated to learning, inquiry and creation, the students, faculty and administration of our university live by the principles in this Honor Code. These principles require all members of this community to be conscientious, respectful, and honest.
WE ARE CONSCIENTIOUS. We complete our work on time and make every effort to do it right. We come to class and meetings prepared and are willing to demonstrate it. We hold ourselves to doing what is required, embrace rigor, and shun mediocrity, special requests and excuses.
WE ARE RESPECTFUL. We act civilly toward one another and we cooperate with each other. We will strive to create an environment in which people respect and listen to one another, speaking when appropriate, and permitting other people to participate and express their views.
WE ARE HONEST. We do our own work and are honest with one another in all matters. We understand how various acts of dishonesty, like plagiarizing, falsifying data and giving or receiving assistance to which one is not entitled, conflict as much with academic achievement as with the values of honesty and integrity.
Please see the link above for an explanation of the Honor Code process.
II. ACCOMODATION STATEMENT for DIS/ABILITY
If you are a student with a disability who will require an accommodation(s) to participate in this course, please contact the instructor as soon as possible. You will be asked to provide documentation from the Office of Disability Services. Failure to contact the instructor in a timely manner may delay your accommodations. For information on how to register a disability and on a range of support services, visit the Office of Disability Services.
III. DIVERSITY CONNECTIONS
Diversity Connections is a resource of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion that is intended to support and contribute to student success at Texas State. The Connections website include links for student organizations, political affiliation, spiritual and religious affiliation, and specific resources for students of color, student veterans, LGBTQIA students, students with disabilities, international students, and undocumented/DACAmented students.
IV. COUNSELING CENTER & MENTAL HEALTH
Minds Matter is a university resource page with a broad range of support services and information for caring for yourself and each other. Our Counseling Center services include brief individual, group, and couples counseling, consultation and crisis response, and workshops about coping with stress and other mental health topics. Counseling Center services are free, confidential, and provided by trained professionals to currently enrolled Texas State students while classes are in session. Please see the Counseling Center website for special programs, services, resources, and crisis information.
V. SEXUAL ASSAULT RESOURCES and SEXUAL MISCOUNDUCT (TITLE IX)

Under Title IX individuals are protected against discrimination based on sex. Individuals can file a report of sexual misconduct.
