Office of Student Conduct Presentations
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. Likewise, peer education and disapproval has a powerful influence on students’ attitude toward, and likelihood of, cheating. 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, explain the Honor Review process, 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! To request a presentation please complete the request form below at least two weeks prior to your preferred presentation date. Please note that depending on demand, we may not be able to accommodate all requests.
- Typical length of presentation -- 30 to 45 minutes
