VPCAI committee invites feedback at Feb. 28 forumFebruary 27, 2007Sara Millersemortim@syr.edu
The Vice Chancellor and Provost’s Committee on Academic Integrity (VPCAI) was convened in the Fall 2004 semester to conduct research and develop recommendations to uphold the highest ideals of academic integrity. The committee — comprising faculty, staff and undergraduate and graduate students — was charged, among other tasks, to “address academic integrity expectations for faculty, students, staff and administrators,” as well as procedures for responding to alleged violations of those expectations.
Over the past two and a half years, the VPCAI has researched and developed recommendations to address academic integrity expectations for faculty, students, staff and administrators, as well as procedures for responding to alleged violations of those expectations. With this focus, the VPCAI published a report in December 2006. The report, recommendations and response are available for review at https://myslice.syr.edu.
The committee invites all members of the University community to provide feedback on this report and recommendations at its upcoming forum Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 4 p.m. in Room 018 of Eggers Hall. Feedback may also be submitted through an online comment form, found at http://provost.syr.edu/integrity_commentform.asp, or by contacting any member of the VPCAI committee through their e-mail address, available on the Academic Affairs website.
