Academic Integrity & Misconduct
"Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to, cheating, misrepresenting one’s work, inappropriately collaborating, plagiarism, and fabrication or falsification of information. ... It also includes facilitating academic misconduct by intentionally helping or attempting to help another to commit an act of academic misconduct."
While policy dictates that academic misconduct issues are adjudicated in the department, college, and SVPAA’s Office, The Dean of Students Office does provide support to students in understanding their rights and responsibilities as described in the Student Code.
Student Accountability & Behavior Issues
The Dean of Students Office provides several resources for faculty who may encounter student behavior issues. For general resource, click here and here. For the Behavioral Intervention Team, click here.
"Professional misconduct" means the violation of professional or ethical standards for the profession of discipline for which a student is preparing as adopted or recognized as authoritative by the relevant academic program. The term also includes specific misconduct that demonstrates the student's unfitness for such profession or discipline.
“Academic action” means the recording of a final grade in a course, on a comprehensive or qualifying examination, on a culminating project, or on a dissertation or thesis. It also includes a decision by the appropriate department or college committee to place a student on academic probation, or to suspend or dismiss a student from an academic program because the student failed to meet the relevant academic standards of the discipline or program. The term “academic action” does not include the decision by a department or program to refuse admission of a student into an academic program. Academic action also does not include academic sanctions imposed for academic misconduct or for professional misconduct.
Staff at the McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention offer a variety of educational programs for the campus community -- including faculty, staff, and student organizations. They emphasis educating, rather than training, which means they focus on long-term, on-going programs designed to engage participants in critical thinking and reflection. Through their educational programs, they encourage people to make sense of sexual violence for themselves, applying the knowledge they gain to their own unique contexts. Their workshops are always interactive and built for YOU!
