The Eastman School of Music is a community of students, faculty, and staff with a tradition of excellence and professionalism. Our high standards depend on the atmosphere of mutual confidence and common purpose which have long sustained the institution. We take pride in our membership in this ongoing community partly because of the common commitment to excellence and professional discipline which has brought us together here. This commitment is essential for the integrity of the entire educational process.
As members of an academic community, Eastman students and faculty have the responsibility to engage in honest communication. Academic honesty in the advancement of knowledge and the pursuit of musical excellence requires that all students and instructors respect the integrity of one another’s work, take responsibility for their own ideas and performances, and acknowledge the importance of others’ ideas and performances. Academic dishonesty is a serious violation of the trust upon which an artistic and scholarly community depends.
Questions about Eastman’s Academic Integrity Policy or standards should be directed to the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs and Director of Assessment.
