Take the Pledge

Choose-Integrity.PNGThe Choose Integrity pledge affirms YOUR commitment to choose integrity both on and off campus, in all of your academic, professional, and research activities. According to the International Center for Academic Integrity, academic integrity means having the courage to act in ways that are honest, fair, responsible, respectful & trustworthy even when it is difficult.

if you don't choose to complete your academic work (e.g., assignments, tests) with integrity, you are lying to yourself, to your instructor, to the university, and your future schools and employers. You are pretending to know more than you do or have skills that you don't yet have. This doesn't serve you in the long run.

And if we don't choose integrity, the UC San Diego degree loses its value and we've all wasted our time and talents!
