6. Why report incidents of academic dishonesty to OJA?
It is important to report academic misconduct so that we can challenge students to reason through ethical situations they encounter as part of the learning process. Reporting academic misconduct is also important for promoting consistency, fairness and accurate record keeping, particularly when students are found to be repeat offenders. Academic integrity is essential to the success of our mission as educators and it is our shared responsibility to address behavior that is counter to our values.
