Academic Integrity

 

The statement

Expectations of academic integrity begin on day 1.  As we each have our own unique nuances to what is and what is not academic dishonesty, it is vital that we educate our students about both the big picture and the nuances.  Please review JU’s statement of academic dishonesty (http://www.ju.edu/cc1314/ccAcademicInfo/Pages/Academic-Honesty.aspx) and discuss it with your students. 

The following link provides links to similar statements from other universities, academic integrity forms and classroom handouts to facilitate such discussions.

Copyright and Fair Use

Actions speak louder than words.  It is important that we model good academic integrity for our students.  One very visible way to do this is in our use of copyrighted materials.

Stanford University has an overview of Copyright and Fair Use.  Do also make use of the expertise and resources our library and librarians have to offer in this area.
