The DSCE highly encourages all faculty members to include a statement about the WCU Academic Integrity Policy in their syllabi. Please visit the Coulter Faculty Commons and the Writing and Learning Commons resource pages for faculty when designing an Academic Integrity statement for your syllabus.
The DSCE wants to support our faculty in holding students accountable for their choices, but we can't help if we don't receive a report about an issue! The Academic Integrity resolution process is designed to be educational and we also want to record each violation, so if it were to happen in another class, the broader pattern can be addressed with the student. Your reports help us attain the shared goal of Academic Integrity for all students at WCU. Please contact 828.227.7234 if you have any questions.
