EAC approved March 22, 2017; President Mark Mitsui Approved April 12, 2017
A big thank you to the task force and especially to Robin Shapiro for her excellent leadership!
Mission Statement: The Academic Integrity Taskforce is dedicated to investigating PCC's current practices and values as related to issues of student academic integrity, with the goal of promoting and sustaining a culture of academic integrity at the college.
- PCC should establish a single point of responsibility for academic integrity, whether an Office of Academic Integrity or another centralized entity.
- Four priorities:
- PCC should formalize the academic integrity violation process into an online form similar to the students of concern form
- PCC should add options for educational responses to academic integrity violations.
- PCC should provide professional development opportunities for faculty and educational opportunities for students related to academic integrity.
- PCC should evaluate and pilot plagiarism detection software.
