The University of Illinois and College of Liberal Arts & Science have the responsibility for maintaining academic integrity so as to protect the quality of education and research on our campus and to protect those who depend upon our integrity.
Campus' student code states that it's the responsibility of each student to refrain from infractions of academic integrity, from conduct that may lead to suspicion of such infractions, and from conduct that aids others in such infractions.
The student code also state that it's instructors' responsibility to establish and maintain an environment that supports academic integrity. An essential part of each instructor's responsibility is the enforcement of existing standards of academic integrity. If instructors do not discourage and act upon violations of which they become aware, respect for those standards is undermined. Instructors should provide their students with a clear statement of their expectations concerning academic integrity.
College-level appeal hearings will be heard from 1-4 p.m. every first Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. to noon every fourth Friday.
