"As a student of Fordham University, I recognize that I am part of a community dedicated to the disciplined and rigorous pursuit and communication of truth. I therefore commit myself to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity. Any work that I present as my own will be my own; I will give appropriate credit where credit is due; I will be fair and honest in all of my interactions with members of the Fordham community."
- The Academic Integrity Statement recited by Fordham College at Rose Hill freshmen, led by the Executive President of the United Student Government, during fall academic orientation.
