Help Your Students Win $$$ AND Support Academic Honesty!

On behalf of the Academic Integrity Implementation Committee, I’m reaching out to ask you to publicize a contest we’re running to name the Academic Integrity Initiative we’ve been working on.   

schorarship $

 This semester we are hosting a contest to name the Academic Integrity information campaign and want your students’ creative ideas for a tagline that the College can use when communicating the importance of honesty in all academic endeavors. The caption selected for the campaign will be used in advertising, publicity and informational materials for the College’s Academic Integrity initiative, slated to start this fall.

 The first prize is a $1500 award that can be used towards tuition as well as in our bookstore. There will also be two $500 prizes awarded.

Students should submit their ideas to academicintegrity@cod.edu

I’ve attached the brochure we handed out to new students during last week’s NSO tabling events – feel free to share the handout or the information in it freely! For additional resources, including suggestions for how you can support Academic Integrity, please visit http://www.codlrc.org/AcademicHonesty

As you are getting your Fall classes together, please consider announcing this contest on the first day of class – you might find it is an excellent segue into discussing your plagiarism policies, student honesty, and academic integrity in general.
