Ten Suggestions for Preserving Academic Integrity

Below are from the Provost who chose all caps. Each title was follow by a long paragraph that undermeans your intelligence (or that of the faculty to whom this was sent).

  1. ACKNOWLEDGE THE SOURCES THAT YOU USE WHEN COMPLETING ASSIGNMENTS.
  2. AVOID SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR.
  3. DO NOT FABRICATE INFORMATION.
  4. DO NOT FALSIFY ANY TYPE OF RECORD.
  5. DO NOT GIVE IN TO PEER PRESSURE.
  6. DO NOT SUBMIT THE SAME WORK FOR CREDIT IN TWO COURSES.
  7. DO YOUR OWN WORK.
  8. MANAGE YOUR TIME.
  9. PROTECT YOUR WORK AND THE WORK OF OTHERS.
  10. READ THE COURSE SYLLABUS AND ASK QUESTIONS.

The Provost admits the above was "inspired by and modeled after Northwestern University's Eight Cardinal Rules of Academic Integrity. Where did the extra two come from? A pdf of the full document can be found online. There the local author is the OSU Committee on Academic Miscondduct--COAM (presumeably not the Provost).
