Notification of Honor Code Cases resolved in Winter 2020 and Spring 2020

Kathryn Osterholtz, Academic Honor Council Chair

There were 24 cases total resolved by the Honor Council in Winter 2020 and Spring 2020: 3 hearings in which the student was found responsible, and 21 Chair-Dean Reviews (CDR). CDRs are an option for first-time violations when the student accepts responsibility for the violation. Of those 21 cases, 9 involved plagiarism, 9 involved cheating, 8 involved facilitation, and 3 involved general Academic Misconduct. There are more charges listed than total cases because in 5 cases, the student was charged with more than one form of academic dishonesty. A more detailed report on the Honor Code cases resolved during Winter Term 2020 and Spring Term 2020, as well as a copy of the Academic Honor Code and the Statement on Plagiarism, can be found on the Academic Honor Code course page on Nexus, as well as in the community notification emails sent out by the Dean of Studies at the beginning of each term.
