Take the Pledge

Excel with Integrity graphicThe Excel with Integrity pledge affirms YOUR commitment to excel with integrity both on and off campus, in academic, professional, and research endeavors. 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.

Creating academic work with integrity is important because otherwise we are misrepresenting our knowledge and abilities and the University is falsely certifying your accomplishments.

And when this happens, the UCSD degree loses its value and we've all wasted our time and talents!
