Academic Honesty Policy

It is assumed that all students will always behave with the highest regard for the honesty of their work in this course. Your work in this course should be your own or the result of an honest and appropriate collaboration with your classmates. Any sources you use, including internet sources, should be fully and clearly documented. See me if you have any questions.

This course will follow WMU academic integrity policies. The Office of Student Conduct (3712 Faunce Student Services Building) can answer frequently asked questions about academic honesty.

The WMU Faculty Senate urges all syllabi to include the following statement:

You are responsible for making yourself aware of and understanding the policies and procedures in the Undergraduate Catalog (pp. 271-272) or the Graduate Catalog (pp. 24-26) that pertain to Academic Integrity. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification and forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. If there is reason to believe you have been involved in academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. You will be given the opportunity to review the charge(s). If you believe you are not responsible, you will have the opportunity for a hearing. You should consult with me if you are uncertain about an issue of academic honesty prior to the submission of an assignment or test.
