Honoring our shared values
Personal integrity is important in everything you do now and throughout your life. For this reason, Ashland adopted its Statement on Ethical Leadership, which undergirds our Academic Integrity Policy. The statement reads:
“The Ashland community strives to model leadership which is based upon Judeo-Christian beliefs and virtues and which will encourage, develop and sustain men and women of character to serve their professions, their communities and the world.”
As a student at Ashland University, you are expected to hold yourself to the highest standards of academic, personal and social integrity including adherence to the academic standards of integrity outlined in this policy.
