NEW... Academic Integrity At Rowan: Your Education, Your Future Website

Please share with your students

"While the Office of the Provost strives to provide high-quality, accessible education for students regarding academic integrity, most of their knowledge about what academic integrity is and how to avoid violations comes from YOU. Be sure to include a statement in your syllabus, discuss how academic integrity applies in your course early and often, and explain the many resources available to students to support their success in honest ways that increase their learning." 

Note: The above link is to a page for students with a link to a page for Faculty which requires you to log in with your Rowan credentials.
