Dr. Catherine Kelly, Office of Academic Support: A strong foundation of academic integrity involves commitment to excellence, and this commitment to excellence paves the way for establishing a respectable reputation in your field. And it paves the way for making a positive difference in education and in the field.

Dr. Allyson Wattley Gee, College of Management and Technology: I know many people think, oh, well, I don't plan to be that high up in the company, so it really doesn't make a difference, you know all that fancy stuff that you all make me do here. Yes, it does. Because if you have a degree from Walden, we expect that you are going to represent what we’re all about.

Dr. Kim Critchlow, College of Management and Technology: You know, you are what you do. And what you do presents you, and if you write with, with integrity, that's what you're putting forth and that's what people are reading and that's what they think about you. So I guess the real question is, how do you want to present yourself?
