Reporting a Violation
Violations of the Honor System harm the entire University community by eroding standards for academic integrity and rigor.
Faculty are expected to use the Honor System in dealing with apparent breaches of academic integrity in their classes. Some may prefer to handle matters (especially minor matters) internally. Unfortunately, however, the resulting lack of central reporting would permit a student to cheat in several courses without any repercussions for multiple offenses.
Students are strongly encouraged, though not required, to report any violations of which they are aware.
An apparent Honor System violation may be reported through any of three channels:
Reports of violations should include the name(s) of the student(s) involved, the course in which the alleged offense occurred, and a brief description of that offense. ("John Doe cheated on an exam in BW201 - Underwater Basket Weaving.")
