A Message From Academic Affairs

Some Thoughts on Academic Integrity

The number of reported cases of plagiarism sent to the Honor Council so far this year has raised a concern about student awareness of academic integrity issues. We would like to take this opportunity to remind faculty about issues related to academic integrity at the College.

The Augustana Honor Code defines plagiarism in the following manner:

“Plagiarism is the misrepresentation of someone else’s research, thought, or writing as one’s own. Plagiarism occurs when a student uses the ideas or phrasing of another individual or group and presents the information as their own without crediting the original source. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the following:

The majority of cases of reported plagiarism have to do with the incorrect citation of sources, especially distinguishing between paraphrasing and direct quotes. The second, and more disturbing trend, is the ability for students to purchase papers that have been specifically written for them with correct citation protocol. Numerous websites offer this service, charging by the page and by how quickly the papers are needed.

We can help prevent the above by doing the following in our classes:

The complete Augustana Honor Code can be found on the Tredway Library website under academic integrity or by clicking here. In addition to the code, the site provides additional resources for preventing plagiarism.
