Academic Discipline Committee

Annual Report, 2009-2010

Most instances of academic dishonesty occurring this year were settled without any action by our committee; the student admitted responsibility and accepted the penalty. Dean Linda Bartlett provides a brief summary of these cases to me. When students dispute the charges, the penalty, or both, a hearing is conducted by the ADC. To date, we have ruled on two such cases.

Committee members this year are John Garihan, Vince Hausmann, Tamara Matthews, Libby Young, Charles Brewer, Roger Sneed, Dake Wang, and students Jordan Mangum, Will Walker, Peter Peckarsky, and Katy Bell. I thank them all for their diligent and cheerful participation.

Chair, ADC
