Stanford University Honor Code and Fundamental Standard
Stanford’s Honor Code has been integral in fostering an atmosphere of trust and respect among students and faculty since it was written in 1921. It articulates University expectations of students and faculty in establishing and maintaining the highest standards in academic work. In part, the Stanford Honor Code states that students will not give or receive aid in examinations; students will not give or receive unpermitted aid in class work, in the preparation of reports, or in any other work that is to be used by the instructor as the basis of grading; and students will do their share and take an active part in seeing to it that others as well as themselves will uphold the spirit and letter of the Honor Code.
The Fundamental Standard of Stanford University addresses personal conduct, and together with the Stanford Honor Code, describes the common community standards to which all Stanford students are held. It states that students at Stanford are expected to show both within and without the University such respect for order, morality, personal honor and the rights of others as is demanded of good citizens.
