At the core of a university education is mutual integrity and trust. Binghamton’s Student Academic Honesty Code, adopted by the Faculty Senate in 2002, establishes guidelines for academic integrity on our campus.
If you suspect academic dishonesty in your classroom, consult with the Chair of the Harpur College Academic Honesty Committee and with departmental colleagues to discuss options for addressing the situation. Faculty wishing to pursue minor cases of academic dishonesty that are first offenses may wish to use the Admission of Dishonesty Form for Minor (Category I) Offenses (.pdf, 326kb). Faculty should pursue cases of dishonesty that are more significant, or that are repeat offenses, through the hearing process. Cases may be handled through an administrative hearing or a full hearing before a hearing board. The Chair of the Academic Honesty Committee can provide additional information.
