The ability to paraphrase effectively is one of the fundamental skills required for effective academic writing. Paraphrasing shows you understand the source language and can restate it in your own words. Paraphrasing also helps you ensure originality in your writing.

Post a paraphrase of the following passage from Walden’s Code of Conduct. Include a proper in-text citation in your paraphrase.

“As an institution fundamentally concerned with the free exchange of ideas, the university depends on the academic integrity of each of its members. In the spirit of this free exchange, students and instructors of Walden recognize the necessity and accept the responsibility for academic integrity. A student who enrolls at the university thereby agrees to respect and acknowledge the research and ideas of others in his or her work and to abide by those regulations governing work stipulated by the academic unit or academic program, and, in turn, the instructor” (Walden University, 2016. para. 8).
