Washington University will host The Center for Academic Integrity’s 18th Annual International Conference Oct. 16-18, 2009. The conference theme is “Creating a Culture of Integrity: Research and Best Practices.”
Among those to be honored at the conference is the late Sara L. Johnson, J.D., associate dean and academic coordinator in the College of Arts & Sciences, who died in 2004 of metastatic neuroendocrine cancer. She was 47.
Johnson, a WUSTL alumna, is credited with leading the effort to develop a campus-wide academic integrity code at Washington University when she came to work here in 1989 as special assistant to then-Chancellor William H. Danforth. She dealt with a wide variety of campus policy issues, community relations, complaint resolution and special projects.
The Center for Academic Integrity, which is a consortium of more than 360 institutions, is affiliated with the Robert J. Rutland Institute for Ethics at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.
