Honor Code: Love Others in Action and Truth
Students, faculty and staff at the University follow a code of honor that governs all aspects of their life.
The honor code Love Others in Action and Truth comes from 1 John 3:18, which states Let us love not in word or speech, but in deed and truth. The JP Catholic community should not be content with merely talking about their commitment to Christ and the Church; they should seek to live their faith in every action and with integrity.
The following practices have been established to this end:
- Do not act dishonestly or permit others to do so. Do not falsify information, lie, plagiarize, cheat, forge, steal, mislead, or take credit for the work of someone else. Do not violate the civil law or any University policy. Do not vandalize property, or borrow items without the owners expressed permission. Do not pirate software, music, movies, etc.
- Do not use the University’s name, facilities or equipment without approval from the appropriate authorities. Do not possess or make copies of University or Legacy keys without authorization.
- Do what you say you will do. Be a person of your word.
- Admit your mistakes. Recognize your weaknesses. Seek to remedy your faults while trusting in the mercy of God.
- Respond promptly to any summons from someone in authority over you.
