Academic and Research Misconduct
Members of the Laurier community enjoy the freedom to pursue their
intellectual and personal interests without interference, provided that
their actions do not limit the rights of other members of the
university or the community in which it is situated. The objects of the
university are the pursuit of learning through scholarship, teaching,
and research within a spirit of free enquiry and expression. The
university recognizes academic freedom and the right to peaceful
protest, acknowledging that the common good of society depends upon the
search for knowledge, and its free expression. To this end, Wilfrid
Laurier University requires that students conduct themselves in
accordance with the laws of the country, province, region, and
municipality as well as the policies of the university. Academic
dishonesty, fraud, misconduct and failure to respect the rights of
others are all offences under this code.
