ACADEMIC DISHONESTY:Academic integrity is fundamental to
the activities and principles of a university. All members of the
academic community must be confident that each person's work has
been responsibly and honorably acquired, developed, and presented.
Any effort to gain an advantage not given to all students is dishonest
whether or not the effort is successful. The academic community
regards breaches of the academic integrity rules as extremely serious
matters. Sanctions for such a breach may include academic sanctions
from the instructor, including failing the course for any violation,
to disciplinary sanctions ranging from probation to expulsion.
When in doubt about plagiarism, paraphrasing, quoting, collaboration,
or any other form of cheating, consult the course instructor.
A FINAL WORD : The
University community welcomes intellectual diversity and respects student
rights. Students who have questions concerning the quality of instruction
in this class may address concerns to either the Departmental Chair,
Dean or Director of the Office of Students
Rights and Responsibilities. All
students will have the opportunity to submit an anonymous evaluation
of the instructo at the end of the course.
