OUR HISTORY & MISSIONFounded in 1870 by “America’s First Family of Inventors,” the Stevens family, Stevens Institute of Technology is a premiertechnological research university with a legacy of leadership in fields including engineering, finance, cybersecurity andcoastal resilience.Stevens graduates co-founded both General Motors and Texas Instruments, engineered the world’s first urban power plant,engineered and erected the steel frames of New York City’s Empire State Building and Chrysler Building, and directedthe design and preparation of spacecraft modules for NASA’s Apollo moon launch missions. From Frederick WinslowTaylor, the father of scientific management, and Mark Crispin (inventor of the IMAP email protocol), to Nobel Prize-winningphysicist Frederick Reines (discoverer of the neutrino, confirming the ‘big bang’ theory), artist Alexander Calder (inventorof the hanging art form known as the mobile), award-winning journalist and political commentator Richard Reeves andcloud-software pioneer Gregory Gianforte, Stevens has produced a long line of technical and business leaders, innovatorsand entrepreneurs.Stevens laboratories and facilities continue to enable groundbreaking research. The Davidson Laboratory features the fastestwave tank complex located at a U.S. university and has played a role in virtually every major maritime and coastal engineeringadvance of the past century and a half, including the development of modern submarines and the re-engineering of Apollospace capsules. The Hanlon Financial Systems Lab features a state-of-the-art simulated Wall Street trading room complete withBloomberg terminals streaming real-time market data and a full suite of leading-edge software tools for financial analysis. TheSystems Engineering Research Center (SERC), a Stevens-led consortium of approximately twenty institutions, is supportedby the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), producing important insights in the creation and evolution of complex systems andthe development of systems engineers. The Immersion Lab enables high-definition visualization of complex concepts anddata for professional audiences and non-professional audiences and stakeholders. Stevens is home to three National Centersfor Excellence, research facilities selected by the U.S. government to lead national research, development and educationefforts to address critical global needs including port security, ship design and development and systems engineering.The Stevens mission is clear:To inspire, nurture and educate leaders in tomorrow’s technology-centric environment whilecontributing to the solution of the most challenging problems of our time.Stevens Institute of Technology 2019-20202

OUR HISTORY & MISSIONWe believe that the solutions to many of the critical problems that face humanity can be found in the improved use andunderstanding of technology, and that it is our duty to produce engineers, scientists and business leaders prepared for thischallenge. This vision is embodied in our Stevens curriculum, which uniquely blends hands-on innovation, entrepreneurshipand marketing education with engineering and technical training with the goal of helping students learn to think outsideof the box and develop real-world products, services, applications and intellectual property. Stevens’ small size and multidisciplinary environment provides students and researchers alike the opportunity to continually collaborate in projects thatcut across departmental lines.Our vision — outlined in our strategic plan, “The Future. Ours to Create.” — is to become a premier, student-centrictechnological research university.We will achieve this goal through five key strategic priorities: Student-Centricity. Stevens will place an extraordinary emphasis on the development of its students, theiracademic and leadership development, career preparation and personal growth. Excellence in All We Do. Stevens will maintain an unrelenting commitment to excellence in all that it does. Through Collaboration, Impact. Building on our agility and collaborative spirit, Stevens will break down internalbarriers to collaborative education and research to maximize the impact of the work of our faculty and students. Technology at Our Core. Proud of our legacy, we will embrace the power of technology as a differentiator to offera distinctive educational experience to our students, drive our research and scholarship programs, devise novelteaching and learning methods and enhance our administrative, outreach and communication activities.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Honor System for Undergraduate Students6 Graduate Student Code of Academic Integrity6Stevens Institute of Technology 2019-20205

Academic IntegrityACADEMIC INTEGRITYHonor System for Undergraduate StudentsêêThe Stevens Honor System is the rigorous ethical and moral standard to which undergraduate students are held, and whichseeks to ensure that all academic work is bona fide. This standard was formally established in 1908 with the creation ofthe Stevens Honor System as well as its governing body, the Stevens Honor Board. The Honor System at Stevens fulfills twoobjectives. First, it seeks to ensure that work submitted by students can be trusted as their own and was performed in anatmosphere of honesty and fair play. Second, it promotes a sense of honor and integrity throughout campus and for Stevens’students in preparation for the professional world.Enrollment into the undergraduate student body at Stevens Institute of Technology signifies a student’s commitment to theHonor System and the University’s ethical and moral standards. It is the responsibility of each student to become acquaintedwith and to uphold the ideals set forth in the Honor System Constitution. Specific student responsibilities include: Maintaining honesty and fair play in all aspects of academic life at Stevens Writing and signing the pledge, in full, on all submitted academic work Reporting any suspected violations to the Honor Board Cooperating with the Honor Board during investigations and hearingsStudent responsibilities are further outlined in the constitution and bylaws of the Honor System, which may be reviewedonline at www.stevens.edu/honor.The Honor Board is the Honor System’s governing body. It is comprised of undergraduate students who are elected bytheir peers. Members of the Honor Board investigate all suspected breaches of academic integrity, and assign penalties tostudents who are found responsible for Honor System violations. When investigating a case, Honor Board members meetwith the accused student, pertinent witnesses, and relevant faculty. The investigation culminates with one of three outcomes:the case is dropped due to insufficient evidence to support the suspected violation, the accused student confesses, or ahearing is held and the case is presented to a jury of the student’s peers.The Honor System also includes a two-level appeals process. Any student who believes the Honor Board did not properlyfollow procedure or who is dissatisfied with a penalty after confessing or being found responsible by a jury may appeal to theAcademic Appeals Committee for a reduced penalty. If unsuccessful, the student may submit a final appeal to the Provostor appointed designee.Graduate Student Code of Academic IntegrityêêThe Graduate Student Code of Academic Integrity holds that integrity is essential to the ethical pursuit of knowledge andis expected of all Stevens graduate students in all academic endeavors including coursework, research, scholarship, andcreative activity.While all members of the Stevens Community have a responsibility to uphold and maintain the highest standards of integrityin study, research, instruction, and evaluation, the Graduate Student Code of Academic Integrity is concerned specificallywith the conduct of graduate students.Stevens Institute of Technology 2019-20206

Academic IntegrityBy enrollment at Stevens, all graduate students promise to be fully truthful and avoid dishonesty, fraud, misrepresentation,and deceit of any type in relation to their academic work.
