ACADEMIC INTEGRITY. The University's Code of Academic Integrity covers many forms of academic dishonesty, but its basic premise is that work submitted in your name must be the result of your own scholarly efforts. This means that material incorporated into your work from other sources must be clearly acknowledged with appropriate citations and references. You may study with classmates, share class notes, and work collaboratively on the problem solving phases of assigned work, but the work that you submit for academic credit must be indisputably expressed in your own words even when it is based on joint intellectual effort. You may not submit material as one's own work that has been purchased or copied from a book, web site, or other source, nor may you allow another student to copy or photocopy your work and submit it independently for academic credit. "Clicker fraud" is equally unacceptable; that is, you may not use a clicker registered in another student's name to misrepresent attendance in class or to submit responses to in-class prompts. When in possession of compelling evidence that students have violated the Code of Academic Integrity, your instructor is empowered to impose sanctions that range from grade penalties on the assigned work to a failing grade in the course.

STUDENT CONDUCT. The lecture hall is an "academic sanctuary" within which both the instructor and students are protected from disruptive behavior that interferes with learning. Instructors are empowered by the University's Policy on Disruptive Behavior in an Instructional Setting to establish and enforce reasonable rules of classroom behavior and decorum. Please pay particular attention to the following expectations for courteous and respectful behavior in this course:

The instructor may dismiss a student who engages in disruptive behavior for the remainder of the class period. If the disruptive behavior persists, the instructor may file a Student Code of Conduct Complaint with the Dean of Students Office which will investigate the complaint and impose appropriate sanctions.

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES. It is the University’s goal that learning experiences be as accessible as possible. Students who anticipate or experience physical or academic barriers based on disability should discuss options with the instructor or contact Disability Resources (520-621-3268) to establish reasonable accommodations.
