Academic Dishonesty

(from Executive Order 1098 on Student Judiciary)

Academic Dishonesty

Grade Reductions for academic dishonesty shall be handled by faculty members. However, as mandated by Executive Order 1098, the faculty member shall complete a form that identifies the student accused of academic dishonesty, the general nature of the offense, the grading action taken, and a recommendation as to whether or not additional action should be considered by the campus judicial affairs office. The completed form should be sent by the faculty member to the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities.

 This process provides an opportunity to hold students accountable for academic dishonesty incidents. In addition, faculty are often not aware that some students may have multiple academic dishonesty incidents that may occur with several departments. By having a central location for all academic dishonesty cases, there is a better understanding of the trends in academic dishonesty and the opportunity for academic affairs and student affairs to address any problem trends in a formal way, e.g., Honor Code, more academic dishonesty education/information.
