Academic Integrity

Goal Statement

The primary goal of this project is to promote and uphold the highest standards of Academic Integrity at Heartland Community College. Academic Integrity is, according to the HCC Catalog, "a fundamental principle of college life at Heartland." It is also intrinsically linked to the HCC Mission of "excellence in teaching and learning" and more specifically to the following goals: 1) holding students to high expectations for learning and growth; 2) preparing students for life beyond the classroom; and 3) upholding all four of the College's General Education Learning Outcomes; by teaching students to think critically, to solve problems, to communicate effectively in both speaking and writing, and to demonstrate the diversity of outcomes through analyzing issues from multiple perspectives, and reflecting upon the formation of their own ideals and values.
