Any incident of cheating, falsifying records, dishonest behavior, or other breach of academic integrity, either confirmed or suspected, should be reported promptly by the observer to the course director or to one of the academic deans. The observer must identify himself/herself to one of these individuals to provide information needed for an investigation to proceed and/or for any discussion to be held with the alleged offender. At the observer’s request, his/her identity will be kept confidential. Any student accused of misconduct must be aware of the accused misconduct and any supporting evidence. Matters of observed misconduct will be referred to the Student Promotions Committee for a hearing and possible disciplinary action.
