Plagiarism Faculty Resources

As a faculty member, you will likely encounter cases of suspected plagiarism at some point in your teaching career. We've compiled helpful resources from around the University to provide you with the information you need. Our goal is to both heighten awareness of what constitutes plagiarism as well as how you can respond to the students, what options are available, etc. so that we can all help students better understand what it is and how to avoid it. If you have questions about how or when to use plagiarism reporting, please contact your departmental leadership team.

July 7, 2021: Code of Student Conduct Update in the University Catalog

  • Course syllabi inform students that the use of third-party websites is a violation of the Code of Student Conduct. Due to an increase in student usage of third-party cheating websites such as Coursehero the Code of Student Conduct has been updated to specify that cheating includes directly or indirectly sharing their work by posting it to a third-party website.

  • In addition, students who are dismissed due to the usage of such third-party websites will have language added to their transcript indicating such, including the revocation of degrees for students whose cheating is discovered after a degree was conferred.
