Final Committee Report & Recommendations to Senate April 2012
The Ad Hoc Committee on Academic Integrity Final Report for 2011-2012 was submitted to Faculty Senate in early May. The document includes 14 recommendations for a wide range of inititatives in teaching, learning, administration and statewide policy. The recommendations are based on best practices across the U.S. but focus on specific UAA problems revealed by the International Center for Academic Integrity’s assessment tool that was administered to faculty and students the previous year.
The 20-page report also includes working documents on proposed changes to the Board of Regents policies, proposed sanctioning guidelines, the position description for an academic integrity coordinator, a student code of conduct report form, and the summary report of the assessment.
At the May 5 Faculty Senate Meeting, Senate members voted to reinstate the Ad Hoc Committee on Academic Integrity for 2012-2013. Members are: Paulo Banchero (Journalism), Sally Bremner (Library), David Bowie (English), Dayna DeFeo (LRC Coordinator), Dawn Dooley (Assoc. Dean of Students), Steffen Peuker (Engineering), Jennifer Stone, Committee Chair (English), and Michael Votava (Assist. Director of Student Conduct). Beth Barnett (Dental) and Claudia Lampman (Psychology) will join us again in the Spring. We hope to recruit members from Business, Nursing, International Student Services, and USUAA to round out the group. Meetings are generally held every 2nd Monday at 8:30 am in LIB205. Please contact one of our members if you are interested.
