Ethics. Integrity. The Wingate University Honor Code demands it.
How important is the Wingate University Honor Code? A copy hangs in every classroom on campus. Students sign an honor pledge on all of their classwork and tests. Their signatures commit them to academic integrity: They won’t lie, cheat, steal or plagiarize. And they won’t allow others to either.
Integrity isn’t limited to the classroom. Students who abide by the Honor Code conduct themselves in a way that doesn’t disrupt the learning environment on campus. At all times.
Wingate University students lead an honor council that also includes faculty and staff. Students charged with an Honor Code violation have a chance to plead their case in front of the honor council. If the honor council finds that a student has violated the academic Honor Code, there will be consequences.
