Hazing Prevention Presentations

  • are exclusively done in-person in formal campus spaces such as

  • only presented during weekdays, Mon-Fri.

Please discuss with your advisor to reserve a room before submitting a presentation request.

One of the most effective ways to prevent academic dishonesty and supporting responsible decision-making is to engage students in a conversation about the topic. We believe that students, faculty and staff can be excellent ambassadors of promoting and modeling honest work and ethical behavior. When faculty members review The Code of Academic Integrity with students, set clear standards, and stress the importance of doing academically honest work in their course, students receive the message that University of Maryland policies (and the consequences of violating them) are serious. It will take faculty, staff and students working together to build a culture of integrity, character and ethics.

In an effort to help start campus discussions about academic integrity, you can either facilitate a presentation to your class or campus group, or request that an Office of Student Conduct staff member come to you. Academic Integrity presentations describe types of academic dishonesty, provide ways to avoid violating University of Maryland policies, and cover other related student conduct issues.

In addition to academic integrity, the Office of Student Conduct offers presentations discussing the student Code of Conduct, values-based decision making, and more. If you do not see an existing presentation option that satisfies your needs, please reach out as we would be happy to work with you!

Before submitting a presentation request, we ask that students reserve formal campus spaces such as a room in Stamp or a classroom. 

Student organizations can reserve a room through UMD's eCalendar website.

Below are the presentations that the Office of Student Conduct offers. We can also tailor presentations to specific groups if requested.

Academic Integrity

The most popular presentation we provide, the Academic Integrity Presentation provides an overview of the Code of Academic Integrity, covering the five academic integrity violations: cheating, plagiarism, facilitation, fabrication, and self-plagiarism. We also cover examples of how students can be referred to our office and possible disciplinary sanctions if students are found responsible of academic misconduct.

Student Conduct

Based on University values, the Student Conduct Presentation covers the Code of Student Conduct of student expectations (regardless of residency status) on and off campus. We cover general prohibited conduct and common sanctions if students are found responsible for non-academic misconduct. 

Academic Integrity and Student Conduct

This presentation combines the Academic Presentation and Student Conduct Presentation elaborated above. This presentation is best given during orientation events or to UNIV100 courses.

Hazing Prevention

Our 45-minute Hazing Prevention Presentation is useful for all organizations and clubs across campus. We understand students have busy schedules, and most commonly provide these presentations on weekday evenings. However, we do not present on weekends and only work in formal campus spaces.

We recommend always contacting the Office of Student Conduct to present Hazing Prevention rather than a hazing slide deck from an outside source. We specifically address how hazing is defined by the University of Maryland, which includes social and emotional forms of hazing, not just physical. Additionally, our presentation discusses why ending hazing culture can be so difficult and provides tangible steps to ending hazing culture on campus.
