Academic Integrity - Contacts

There are many professionals at the university who can provide assistance with questions about academic integrity.

Faculty with questions about how to promote integrity through teaching techniques should contact the Center for Teaching, Research & Learning and/or their dean’s designee for integrity issues (see list below).

Students with questions about what constitutes academic dishonesty should start by asking their course instructor for guidance, as they are the best resources for academic integrity questions/issues related to their curriculum.

The staff of the Writing Center, the Academic Support and Access Center, and the University Library include experts who can help teach how to avoid plagiarism.

Each dean has designated an Academic Integrity Code Administrator who adjudicates cases that occur in their academic unit. The AIC administrators serve as resources for faculty and students alike. They are listed as follows:
