MEMBERS OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE, SAN DIEGO DIVISION
The Educational Policy Committee calls your attention to a revised Policy on Integrity of Scholarship, which takes effect Fall Quarter 2014. The Representative Assembly of the San Diego Division approved the changes on June 3, 2014.
The updated Policy can be found at:
Major changes include:
· A new section documenting procedures for cases of academic dishonesty occurring outside of coursework.
· The implementation of a deadline for instructors to withdraw charges of academic dishonesty.
· Clarification that Academic Records will only administratively re-enroll a student in a course if the student drops the course after a charge has been filed with the Academic Integrity Office. The Policy was also amended to allow instructors to submit charges for all coursework submitted by students, including those students that have since dropped themselves from the course. In these cases, academic sanctions will not be applied, but the revision would permit the University to apply administrative sanctions in cases where a student is found responsible for violating the Policy.
Please feel free to submit comments or questions to the Educational Policy Committee via Lori Hullings, Senate Analyst (firstname.lastname@example.org).
