CHAPTER 6. NJIT INTEGRITY
This chapter addresses Standard 6 of the Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education: Integrity.
Integrity at NJIT permeates at two levels. At a macro-level, integrity is included as a core value in the NJIT strategic plan; as such, the university has embraced the state-mandated Uniform Code of Ethics for faculty, administration and staff, and student integrity is guided by the University Code of Academic Integrity. At the micro-level NJIT fosters, assesses and maintains integrity through ethics training, conflict of interest disclosure, and online sexual harassment training, and by providing events highlighting women’s issues, cultural diversity, and sexual orientation. NJIT’s policies and procedures are designed to ensure integrity in faculty selection, promotion, tenure, retention, compensation, and administrative review.
