Ethics Forum Will Address Academic Integrity
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A panel of four speakers will address “How Honest are Chico Students?: Perspectives on Academic Integrity.”
Speakers will be asked these questions: What constitutes cheating? Do students and professors even agree on what constitutes cheating? Is there a culture of cheating among students here at CSU, Chico? Is it an epidemic as some claim?
The panel will discuss what professors, the University, Student Judicial Affairs, and students are doing about academic dishonesty. They will discuss the effectiveness of anti-plagiarism software such as Turnitin. They will talk about policy changes that could positively affect the plagiarism climate.
Panelists include Professor William Loker, dean of Undergraduate Education; Linda Gatton, coordinator of Student Judicial Affairs; Professor James Jacob, Department of Political Science and International Relations; and Rajbir Judge, Honors Program student.
The Center for Applied and Professional Ethics promotes ethical reflection about issues of concern within and outside the University. For more information go to http://www.csuchico.edu/cape/announcements/perspectives_on_academic_integrity.shtml.
