As a Jesuit, Catholic university, committed to the education of the whole person, Georgetown expects all members of the academic community, students and faculty, to strive for excellence in scholarship and in character.
To uphold this tradition, the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar has established an honor system. Students are required to sign a pledge certifying that they understand the provisions of the Honor System and will abide by it. Students reaffirm this pledge at New Student Convocation, just before fall classes begin.
The Honor Council is the principal administrative body of this system. The Honor Council has two primary responsibilities: to administer the procedures of the Honor System and to educate the faculty and undergraduate student body about the standards of conduct and procedures of the System.
Every student is required to complete the online Scholarly Research & Academic Integrity Tutorial during the first semester. In first year courses such as the Proseminar, students also receive instruction on proper forms of citation and how to avoid plagiarism.
