The Office of Academic and Community Conduct provides the following academic-integrity resources for faculty members.

Academic Integrity Policy—Please review the Academic Integrity Policy if you are not familiar with it. This will help in identifying incidents of academic misconduct when they occur.

Reporting and Communicating Academic Misconduct—We strongly urge you to report all incidents of suspected or confirmed academic misconduct to your faculty supervisor; see submit a concern  and processes and guidelines for further information. It is vitally important that students understand that academic misconduct is unacceptable and results in a report to the Dean of Students; hence, a student will be identified if he/she is engaging in academic misconduct in more than one class. We will always discuss a situation with the instructor before taking any action.

Problems with Collaboration—A recurring problem that arises when students are accustomed to working in teams is they continue to work in a team when given an individual assignment. Sometimes this results from understandable confusion if the instructor doesn't give explicit instructions about how assignments should be completed.
