I'm trying to digest the following paragraph, that the Brigham Young University is including in its faculty members syllabi. The issue is the the faculty member didn't write the paragraph.
University Policies Honor Code
In keeping with the principles of the BYU Honor Code, students are expected to be honest in all of their academic work. Academic honesty means, most fundamentally, that any work you present as your own must in fact be your own work and not that of another.
Violations of this principle may result in a failing grade in the course and additional disciplinary action by the university. Students are also expected to adhere to the Dress and Grooming Standards. Adherence demonstrates respect for yourself and others and ensures an effective learning and working environment. It is the university's expectation, and my own expectation in class,
that each student will abide by all Honor Code standards. Please call the Honor Code Office at 422-2847 if you have questions about those standards. Question: Considering that the professor didn't write the paragraph, does anyone other than myself have a problem with this?
Does anyone other than me find this paragraph to be self contradictory?
