"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 and led by the Executive President of the United Student Government during fall academic orientation.
