Affirmation of Integrity
The City University of New York - and Queensborough Community College in particular - is committed to upholding the tenets of integrity in all aspects of our operations. This is especially true of the Office of Academic Affairs: to that end, we employ rigorous and thorough analysis of all faculty scholarship, and base our personnel actions on a comprehensive and holistic review of one's academic accomplishments, including excellence in teaching, service to the institution and its students, and the quality of creative and scholarly research as presented in a variety of forums. We advise faculty members to seek reputable venues for their scholarly output, and to utilize the resources of the Kurt R. Schmeller Library when assessing potential avenues for publication and presentation. Faculty are reminded of the College's 'Guidelines for Promotion to Full Professor' and implored to avail themselves of the numerous professional development opportunities aimed at protecting themselves and the University from association with disreputable outlets.
