The students of Colorado School of Mines have adopted the following Student Honor
Code in order to establish a high standard of student behavior at Mines. The Code may
only be amended through a student referendum supported by a majority vote of the
Mines student body. Mines students shal be involved in the enforcement of the Code
through their participation in the Student Conduct Appeals Board.


Mines students believe it is our responsibility to promote and maintain high ethical
standards in order to ensure our safety, welfare, and enjoyment of a successful learning
environment. Each of us, under this Code, shal assume responsibility for our behavior in
the area of academic integrity. As a Mines student, I am expected to adhere to the
highest standards of academic excellence and personal integrity regarding my
schoolwork, exams, academic projects, and research endeavors. I will act honestly,
responsibly, and above all, with honor and integrity in all aspects of my academic
endeavors at Mines. I wil not misrepresent the work of others as my own, nor wil I give
or receive unauthorized assistance in the performance of academic coursework. I wil
conduct myself in an ethical manner in my use of the library, computing center, and all
other school facilities and resources. By practicing these principles, I wil strive to uphold
the principles of integrity and academic excellence at Mines. I wil not participate in or
tolerate any form of discrimination or mistreatment of another individual.
