teaching research and other educational and scholarly activities The Ohio State University and the Committee on Academic Misconduct COAM expects that all students have read and understand the University s Code of Student Conduct and that all students will complete all academic and scholarly assignments with fairness and honesty Students must recognize that failure to follow the rules and guidelines established in the University s Code of Student Conduct and in this syllabus may constitute Academic Misconduct The Ohio State University s Code of Student Conduct Section 33352304 oaaosueducoamhomehtml defines academic misconduct as Any activity that tends to compromise the academic integrity of the University or subvert the educational process Examples of academic misconduct include but are not limited to plagiarism collusion unauthorized collaboration copying the work of another student and possession of unauthorized materials during an examination Ignorance of the University s Code of Student Conduct is never considered an excuse for academic misconduct so I recommend that you review the Code of Student Conduct and specifically the sections dealing with academic misconduct If I suspect that a student has committed academic misconduct in this course I am obligated by University Rules to report my suspicions to the COAM If COAM determines that you have violated the University s Code of Student Conduct ie committed academic misconduct the sanctions for the misconduct could include a failing grade in this course and suspension or dismissal If you have
