Academic integrity work progresses

Washington University in St. Louis is moving into the next phase of plans to centralize the undergraduate academic integrity process, in response to feedback from a faculty commission.

Two working groups established in the fall 2022 semester collaborated to recommend a new framework that aims to strengthen a culture of academic honesty and responsibility.

The university community may provide feedback regarding proposed changes until Sept. 1. Community members also are invited to serve on one of two remaining working groups. One will focus on building an initial framework for suggested outcomes when a student is found in violation of the academic integrity policy, while the other will focus on shaping student educational experiences related to academic integrity.

Read the executive summary, sign up for a working group and share feedback on the Office of the Provost website.

Jennifer Smith, vice provost for educational initiatives, will hold an information session at the start of the fall semester for those interested in hearing more about the proposed changes.
