Academic Integrity Information for Faculty

All possible violations of the Academic Integrity Policy should be reported to the Associate Dean for Student Academic Affairs. Not every case needs to be resolved through a formal adjudication by the College Honor Board. When a faculty member has reason to believe that a violation has occurred, the faculty member should meet with the student to discuss the conduct in question and the evidence thereof. The faculty member has the discretion to assign penalties within the scope of the course, up to and including failure of the course. Should the student think that the penalty selected by the faculty member is inappropriate, either because the penalty is too severe, or that the evidence does not meet the preponderance of the evidence of a violation, or should the faculty member feel the grade penalty is insufficient, either party can request that the case be reviewed by the College Honor Board.

If both the student and the faculty member agree that the conduct violated the policy and the penalty is appropriate, the record will be referred to the Associate Dean of Student Academic Affairs, who will maintain the records thereof.

In either case, the form linked below needs to be filled out, signed by both parties, and submitted to the Associate Dean of Student Academic Affairs along with any supporting documents as soon as possible after the concern is addressed. Cases on file by the Associate Dean will be reviewed for patterns of violations. If the Associate Dean believes that a pattern of violations may be emerging, the Associate Dean may bring the most recent case to the College Honor Board for adjudication.

See Academic Integrity Policy for a description of prohibited conduct in the College of Arts and Sciences.

See College Honor Board to review procedures followed by the College Honor Board. Both the faculty member and the student are requested to attend the Honor Board hearing to present their perspectives on the case at hand when it is adjudicated.
