1. Statement of Intellectual Responsibility (Voted by the Faculty 1966; amended April 1987) Every person's education is the product of his or her intellectual effort and participation in a process of critical exchange. Amherst cannot educate those who are unwilling to submit their own work and ideas to critical assessment. Nor can it tolerate those who interfere with the participation of others in the critical process.
