Academic integrity topic
Will a business student who cuts and pastes material from
an Internet paper mill one day become a corrupt CEO who cooks
his companys books?
will a group of biology students who fabricate data in the lab
alter their results when trying to get a drug to market?
types of ethical dilemmas and possible ways to stave them
off, such as strengthening university honor codes will
be among the many academic integrity issues to be examined during
a three-day conference in early October at U.Va.
conference, sponsored by Duke Universitys Center for Academic
Integrity and co-sponsored by U.Va., will involve noted scholars,
student affairs administrators and other university officials
from across the country. Mike Adams, a former Kansas City, Kan.,
high school principal who resigned when the school board did not
support a teachers decision to hold 28 students accountable
for plagiarism, will deliver the conferences opening address
Oct. 5 at 8:30 a.m.
data in research with live patients, embezzlement, lying, cheating
and stealing, insider trading and countless other recent examples
of widespread failures in integrity plague our society today,
said Diane Waryold, CAIs executive director.
when students collaborate with fellow classmates on an assignment
when theyre not authorized to do so, the question then becomes,
Do you believe that these behaviors can transform into real-world
behaviors? A conference to examine these types of issues
could not come at a more appropriate time.
