“Miami University is a scholarly community whose members believe that a liberal education is grounded in qualities of character as well as of intellect. We respect the dignity of other persons, the rights and property of others, and the right of others to hold and express disparate beliefs. We believe in honesty, integrity, and the importance of moral conduct. We defend the freedom of inquiry that is the heart of learning and combine that freedom with the exercise of judgment and the acceptance of personal responsibility.”
Academic integrity is taken very seriously at Miami University. You may find different expectations at Miami about academic integrity and dishonesty than you have had in your previous schooling, particularly when it comes to writing and using information from sources.
