CCE students, faculty, staff, and alumni will: maintain the highest standards of honesty and integrity; strive for these standards in all representations, academic pursuits, research and scholarly activity; respect the property and individual rights of others; uphold the specific principles described in the CCE Honor Code; and actively support the CCE Honor Code.
CCE is a community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni in which all members:
- respect and promote academic integrity;
- conduct themselves according to the standards of professional conduct within the fields of architectural engineering, civil engineering, and construction engineering management;
- cultivate an environment where academic and professional misconduct and dishonesty are not tolerated;
- understand that academic and professional misconduct and dishonesty are violations of the profound trust upon which our academic and professional communities are founded;
- prevent students from gaining an unfair advantage through academic misconduct;
- understand that responsibility for upholding and promoting academic integrity lies with themselves; and,
- promote each member’s understanding of the CCE Honor Code.
CCE Honor Code Purpose
Striving for the highest standards of academic and professional conduct will enhance the quality of the CCE experience, enrich the image of CCE within the professional and greater community, strengthen the prestige of a CCE degree, and reinforce the societal and professional norms of ethical practice. The purpose of the CCE Honor Code is to create and maintain a community bound by high standards of professional and academic conduct in which the CCE mission may be successfully advanced, and to ensure that the respect of the professional community for the students, alumni, and faculty of CCE will endure.
