What is plagiarism? The dictionary's definition is: "Using ideas, plots, text and other intellectual property developed by someone else while claiming it is your original work." Plagiarism is theft; plagiarism is a lie; plagiarism involves pretense and deception; plagiarism is a violation of the DBU Honor Code.

Why does DBU have an Honor Code? Consider Colossians 3:23:

"Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men."(NASB)

Your opportunity for an education at DBU is a gift from God. Don’t allow dishonesty or laziness to tarnish that gift.
