Academic Integrity Week
Mississippi State University will host its first annual Academic Integrity Week October 29, 2012 – November 1, 2012. Promoting academic integrity involves much more than adjudicating cases of alleged academic dishonesty. It also requires an institutional-wide effort to promote integrity through preventive programming as well as providing students with remediation steps to deter future academic dishonesty violations. The purpose of Academic Integrity Week is to encourage ethical behavior by conducting educational programs that promote honesty and integrity both inside and outside of the classroom.
The events for Academic Integrity Week are listed below:
