    addressed in this policy and have separate
    procedures that must be followed.

11
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
12
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • The University developed this policy to make
    possible an orderly academic environment where
    all members of the community have the freedom to
    develop to the fullest extent.

13
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • ACADEMIC DISHONESTY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
  • THIS BEHAVIOR IS CONSIDERED A STUDENT CONDUCT
    VIOLATION.

14
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • Faculty members should make every effort to
    prevent dishonesty, protect honest students, and
    take appropriate action in instances of
    dishonesty.

15
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • The most common offenses subject to grade penalty
    and/or disciplinary action are
  • Cheating on an examination or quiz
  • Plagiarism
  • Collusion
  • Duplicity

16
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • Cheating on an examination To give or receive,
    to offer or solicit information on any quiz or
    examination.

17
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • Plagiarism To adopt and reproduce as ones own,
    to appropriate for ones own use and incorporate
    in ones own work without acknowledgement, the
    ideas of others or passages from their writings
    and works.

18
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy

    specific approval in advance by the professor,
    assistance in the production of work offered for
    credit .

19

    substantially unchanged work in two or more
    courses, without specific advance approval of the

20
Academic Integrity and Grievance Policy
  • The Academic Integrity and Grievance Committee
    (AIGC) hears specific grade appeals and hears, on
    appeal and referral, cases involving certain
    alleged academic offenses.

21
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Informal Step
  • Communicate to the student that you suspect
    academic dishonesty.
  • This is an informal step that you can take to
    investigate your suspicion. If you are convinced
    that a violation has taken place after your
    discussion with the student, you must follow the
    next steps.

22
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Step 1
  • Complete the Allegation of Academic Offense Form
  • By completing this form you are officially
    notifying the student, department chair, and dean
    of students of the charge. You are also assuring
    that the student will receive his/her right of
    due process.
  • The form must be delivered by mail or in person.

23
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Step 2
  • Schedule a conference with the student
  • Highlight the fact that the student only has
    three class days to schedule the conference.
  • The grade penalty is automatically applied if the
    student does not meet with you.
  • Regardless of the outcome of this conference, the
    faculty member must notify the dean of students
    of the results.

24
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Step 3
  • Within six class days of being notified of the
    charge, the student should schedule a meeting
    with the dean of students/designee to discuss
    his/her due process rights and address the
    allegations. If the student admits to a
    violation, a sanction is imposed and any grade
    penalty stands.

25
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Step 4
  • If the student denies academic misconduct, he/she
    may appeal to the Academic Integrity and
    Grievance Committee within ten days of receipt of
    the Academic Offense Allegation Report Form.
  • Failure to appeal within ten days will result in
    imposition of the grade penalty and/or
    disciplinary action and waiver of the right to
    appeal.

26
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
  • Step 5
  • The chairperson of the Academic Integrity and
    Grievance Committee will convene the committee
    for a hearing.

27
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
(Important Points)
  • Grade Penalties
  • Only faculty members may impose a grade penalty.
  • Grade penalties for consideration
  • A grade of F in the course
  • A grade of F on the examination, project, etc.
  • A grade adjustment
  • No credit for material presented

28
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
(Important Points)
  • In cases where the student accepts responsibility
    and the offense warrants a severe penalty such as
    expulsion or suspension.
  • The Dean of Students must refer the case within
    three (3) class days to the chairperson of AIGC.

29
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
(Important Points)
  • In a case where the student maintains a plea of
    not responsible.
  • The Dean of Students will review the specific
    charge and evidence with the student, the
    students rights and privileges, appeals
    procedures, operating policies of the AIGC.
  • After this review, if the student maintains the
    plea of not responsible, the Dean of Students
    will offer to assist the student in writing a
    statement of appeal.

30
Steps Toward Redress for Academic Offenses
(Important Points)
  • The student has the right to attend classes until
    the appeal is resolved.
  • The student may not withdraw from a course while
    an allegation of academic dishonesty in that
    course is being adjudicated.
  • If the student withdraws from a course after
    receiving notification of an allegation of
    academic dishonesty, the student will be
    reinstated, pending final adjudication of the
    allegation.
  • At the conclusion of the adjudication process
  • If academic dishonesty is found, and a grade of
    "F" in the course is assigned, then the failing
    grade will be recorded and remain on the
    student's transcript.
  • If academic dishonesty is found, and a penalty
    less than a grade of "F" for the course was
    assigned, then the student may continue in the
    course or withdraw from the course at that time.
  • If academic dishonesty is not found, the student
    may continue in the course or withdraw from the
    course at that time.
