Promoting A Positive Culture
  • On your syllabi and in class:
  • This course uses a web-based service Turnitin.com with D2L dropboxes to reveal plagiarism and academic misconduct. All files uploaded to the course D2L dropboxes will be submitted to Turnitin. To preserve their privacy, all students have the right to remove their names from papers before uploading to a drop box. In addition to using TII, the professors will also use other standard verification measures if necessary to uphold standards of academic integrity, eg, online searches, meeting with the student and verbal verification of the ideas in the file. If you have any questions about academic misconduct, please review Stout’s policy in your orientation materials or at http://www.uwstout.edu/services/dean/studentconduct/index.cfm. . If you have other questions about ethics and academic integrity, please visit the Ethics Center: www.uwstout.edu/ethicscenter
