For the next few weeks, we will be exploring academic dishonesty at Carleton. The purpose of this feature is to engage the community in a dialogue about the issue and allow people to voice their opinions. We welcome submissions of any kind on the subject, and we challenge the Carleton community to push ourselves to talk. Feel free to contact daugherd or kinseya with any questions or submissions.
In short: Academic Standing Committee records indicate that in the past 10 terms (i.e., fall 2007 through fall 2010) 70 different pieces of academic work [e.g., exams, papers] have been referred to the ASC for investigation and resolution.
As a result of these investigations, 51 students have been found responsible for violating Carleton’s standards for academic honesty over this period of time. In most situations the ASC provided a sanction of censure and warning or disciplinary probation. However, 5 students were suspended from the College for a specified period of time.
