Academic Integrity and Intellectual Property Rights

Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are responsible for reading and understanding all sections in the Student Handbook relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Students who violate University rules regarding academic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure or removal from a course, disciplinary probation, and/ or dismissal from the University.  Academic dishonesty includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, fabrication, falsification, falsifying academic records, or other acts that provide an unfair advantage to the student. Detailed definitions of these acts are provided in the Student Handbook.

Texas Woman’s University’s URP 02.400: Intellectual Property covers the ownership, distribution, and commercial development of intellectual property developed by TWU faculty, staff, students, and others participating in TWU programs.
