Army Management Staff College Honor Code

The Army Management Staff College is committed to Army values as outlined in ADP 6-22, Army Leadership. Inherent in these values are integrity and ethical conduct. By pledging to support the Army Management Staff College Honor Code, you agree to uphold the standards as outlined below.

  • I will not lie in my academic endeavors. Lying is the willful and knowledgeable telling of an untruth as well as any form of deceit, attempted deceit, or fraud in an oral or written statement relating to academic work.
  • I will not cheat in my academic endeavors. Cheating is inappropriate possession or use of copies of papers, examinations, solutions, or any other controlled issue material. Inappropriate means the College did not intend to provide this material to students before the examination or performance of other academic work. Students who accept copies of papers, examinations, solutions, or other controlled issue from anyone except the designated faculty at the designated time and who do not call this to the attention of AMSC personnel (Faculty, Course Director, Deputy Director, and Director) are contributing to cheating. Contributing to cheating is the same as cheating, whether for others or for oneself.
  • I will not practice plagiarism. Plagiarism is the presentation of another's writing or another's ideas as one's own without appropriate citation of credit. This includes material extracted from the Internet or other electronic source. Use of other students', graduates' or author's work without appropriate citation or reference that this work belongs to another is stealing intellectual property. It is a form of cheating and lying. Using text written by another, short or long, when you know that it is not yours and not giving credit to the owner is a violation of the AMSC Honor Code.
  • I will give prompt notification to my faculty advisor when I observe academic dishonesty. I have recourse Course Director, Deputy Director, and Director when I believe that insufficient action has been taken.
  • I will model behavior that reflects the spirit of Army values. I will insist that my fellow students also model that behavior.
  • Pledging to uphold AMSC's Honor Code is tantamount to attending any program, course, or activity sponsored wholly or in part by the AMSC.
