Academic and Personal Integrity for Students
One of the most effective ways to prevent academic dishonesty is to engage students in a conversation on the topic of academic and personal integrity. Discussing the importance of academic integrity, clarifying the definitions of the four types of academic dishonesty, and providing suggestions for how to eliminate the "need" to commit academic dishonesty, will go a long way toward curbing violations of academic dishonesty. Students respond positively to faculty members who show that they care about academic integrity both by discussing the topic and enforcing the rules as set out in the Student Conduct Code.
In an effort to help start classroom discussions about academic and personal integrity, Student Conduct and Community Standards staff members are able to come to your class to facilitate an interactive discussion on this topic. Types of academic dishonesty will be defined as well as srategies and resources to avoid this particularly serious violation. The University's process addressing reports of academic dishonesty will also be explained.
Presentations will be tailored to meet the needs of your class.
- Length -- between 15 minutes and 1 hour
- Audience -- tailored for specific types of classes (e.g., group projects, writing-intensive, exam-intensive) and participants (e.g., undergraduates, graduate students, TAs)
