Academic misconduct is conduct in violation of the conduct code, and/or other unethical conduct. I will report to the COE Academic Conduct Committee any action that I believe constitutes misconduct.
Some examples of misconduct are listed below. (The following was copied from the CAS Conduct Code website (http://www.bu.edu/cas/undergraduate/conductcode.html) on 3 September
The following list contains examples of academic misconduct, and is not intended to be complete. Note that, although the examples refer to written assignments and exams, the same rules apply to assignments and exams that are administered or presented orally or by some other non-written means.

Academic dishonesty is the use of unauthorized assistance with the intent to deceive an instructor. Academic dishonesty includes behaviors like cheating, plagiarism, and fabrication. Cheating is the use of materials, information or notes that are not authorized by the instructor. Plagiarism is the act of claiming or using someone’s own words or ideas and using them as your own without giving them credit. Fabrication involves falsifying information or data.
To start with, Orange Coast College should still maintain the academic misconduct policy. Academic misconduct has been a long problem on campus. Most students are involved in some form of academic misbehavior during their college career. One of the violations that students do is plagiarism and cheating. As stated by Sarah Glazer, “More than two-thirds of college students admit to cheating on a test or on written assignments – including plagiarizing from published materials or getting someone else to write their term paper…” (p. 3). It’s shocking that many students engage these violations and they think that the school won’t find out. Of course, at Orange Coast
Academic honesty, expected of every student, is essential to the process of education and to upholding high ethical standards. Cheating, including plagiarism, inappropriate use of technology, or any other kind of unethical or dishonest behavior, may subject the student to severe academic penalties, including dismissal.All work submitted for evaluation in a course, including tests, term papers, and computer programs, must represent only the work of the student unless indicated otherwise. This includes homework, essays, theses, and creative projects.Material taken from the work of others must be acknowledged. Materials submitted to fulfill requirements in one course may not be submitted in another course without prior approval of the instructor.
1. Claims and assertions of dishonest behavior against instructors keep on increasing. Without sufficient documentation and adherence to the ACA Code of Ethics a guide's powerlessness is likewise expanded.
When students have completed their test and turned it in, they may work on anything, as long as they are quiet. If they owe me any work, they may use this time to complete it. I have extra copies of assignments on the cart in the front of the room. They are welcome to take any assignment they need and complete it.
The University of Southern California found themselves in a situation questioning their policies. This time, however, it did not lead to the correct and warranted action. According to Flaherty (2017), the University of Southern California has failed to sufficiently address a student’s harassment allegations against a professor. Although the professor, Dr. Guerrero, was disciplined by the university and warned that any reoccurrence would lead to dismal. Karissa Fenwick, however, was disappointed that he was not terminated after the university determined that misconduct had occurred (Flaherty, 2017). The underlying issue in this article is that American colleges and universities disciplinary measures or lack thereof are failing to

However, the crisis was limited to the AFAM department and was not widespread. Professor Julius Nyang’oro, Chairman of the AFAM department, and Ms. Crowder, Department Manager, were deeply involved in what transpired in the University (Lyall). The aim of this misconduct, which lasted for 18 years, was to keep student athletes academically eligible with NCAA academic rules (Skirnick). However, the actions taken by the department and
The University and its official representatives may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of any form of academic dishonesty including but not limited to cheating, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, and multiple submissions.
2. The faculty of Harvard and Harvard itself treated the students with respect prior to the cheating scandal but the students acted unethically. Any secondary ethic violation occurred only in response to the first violation which was
The Academic Integrity Committee governs advisory, educational, promotional, coordination, and other functions, including students’ plagiarism. Depending on the university, the committee goes by various names. For example, at the University of Cambridge, the Academic Integrity Committee is called the Chair of Examiners.
1. What are examples of a breach in ethical conduct? What examples did you see in the readings this week? An ethical breach occurs when someone within the organization makes an ethical choice that sets a standard by which others can make a similar decision. The danger of ethical breaches is that they are a fundamental change in the ethics of your organization. When an ethical breach occurs, you must move quickly to repair the damage to your organization and then analyze the nature of the breach; determine whether the violation was unethical and whether it should incite a change in your rules or lead to severe punishment for the person who initiated the breach (Hammond, Kristyn). In this week case study, the breach in ethics occurred when supervisor
