Promoting Academic Integrity

With more online learning and more  opportunity to electronically undermine the teaching process, it is necessary to revise the Code of Academic Integrity and the  documentation that surrounds its use.

Our agenda has two stages. First we will consider Code modifications that are inspired by what we learned from the Spring 2020 semester (Stage 1). After those are processed we will turn our attention to various shortcomings of the Code that have been known for some time but which are becoming increasingly serious (Stage 2).
