Through its mission and Student Affairs Ethos Statement, LIU Post encourages its students to become model and well-educated citizens. The Academic Conduct Ethos Statement mirrors these same ideals and expectations.

Ethos Statement

LIU Post is committed to the advancement of learning and service to society. Its educational mission reflects a commitment to intellectual rigor, social justice, and active engagement of contemporary issues. Working together as a community, students, faculty, and administrators help foster a Campus atmosphere that advances the mission of the Campus.

The principles of the LIU Post mission statement challenge students to:

  • Strive for excellence
  • Become men and women in service to others
  • Integrate curricular and co-curricular learning
  • Develop talents through discovery and reflection
  • Be concerned for the welfare of each person

To achieve all these ideals, all students are expected to contribute, through their words, actions, and commitments, to the development and sustenance of an academic community characterized by respect, honesty, originality, and fairness. These characteristics are essential to ensure the rights and privileges of all students and faculty while preserving the academic integrity of our educational community.

The standards of academic conduct are designed to foster the highest ideals of academic integrity. Adherence to these standards by all members of the campus community promotes excellence in teaching and learning.
