This term at Harvard University, students have been taking a pledge not to cheat. Brett Flehinger, Harvard's Dean of Academic Integrity, says that the message is about "changing the culture", with a more overt assertion of the principles of academic honesty, rather than just chasing grades. "Students are under a lot of pressure, not all of it healthy".
