Academic and Personal Integrity
The Seminary maintains high standards for integrity in academic work, in the completion of field study covenants, and in community relationships. Evidence of a lack of integrity in any of these areas which comes to the attention of faculty members or students may be dealt with on a personal basis, or, in the case of flagrant breaches of academic honesty such as plagiarism, may be referred by the deans to the Student Standing Committee. The Seminary is committed to fairness, due process, and proper compassion. At the same time, given its objectives, McCormick cannot overlook failures of personal integrity in members of the Seminary community and will deal with them in an effort to seek the best interests of all concerned.
