As Discussed in the
2003 - 2005 New Saint Andrews College General Catalog
(pages 44 and 45)

"New Saint Andrews expects students to express themselves truthfully and honestly in all facets of their academic work and personal relations with the faculty, staff, and students.

Students must do their own work , and their own alone, on all assignments, exercises, and examinations, oral or written, except where disclosed properly and fully in citations, footnotes, end notes, bibliographies, and/or other appropriate forms, and only within the limits allowed by the instructor and commonly recognized academic standards.

Students must avoid plagiarism, misrepresentation, misappropriation of the work of others, or any other form of academic dishonesty, whether intentional or the result of reckless disregard for academic integrity.  Such academic dishonesty may be grounds for disciplinary action by the instructor and the administration up to and including dismissal from the College.”


As It Is

As they prepared Southern Slavery As It Was for publication, Douglas Wilson and his co-author, Steven Wilkins, plagiarized extensively from Fogel and Engerman's "Time On the Cross," a book that was highly criticized by historians of the South.
