This bill replaces the section entitled "Steps for Remedial Action" in the Policy on Academic Honesty (Faculty Senate Bill 03-A-04) with the following.
Protocol for Adjudicating Alleged Violations of Academic Honesty
Faculty members who discover evidence of academic dishonesty should contact the student within five business days of discovering the alleged dishonesty to arrange to meet and discuss the allegation. Prior to this meeting the faculty member may consult with the Department Chairperson, the appropriate Dean, and the Office of Judicial Affairs. The following sections describe the procedures to be adhered to in each of the listed instances: the student acknowledges the violation, the student denies the violation, and the appeals process. If the faculty member is the Department Chairperson, a departmental designee will assume the Department Chairperson's role in this protocol and references to the Department Chairperson should be read as departmental designee. The procedures below should be followed with online, ITV or face-to-face classes.
*Specific sanctions in syllabus are not subject to appeal
