**Academic Integrity:**

Each student must pursue his or her goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong.
Instructors are required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to the Academic Judiciary. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity,
including categories of academic dishonesty, see the academic judiciary web site at http://www.stonybrook.edu/cinncms/academic-integrity/index.html
