Promoting Academic Integrity [Event Flyer]
This fall, LMU faculty and a selected sample of LMU students are completing Dr. McCabe’s survey on Academic Integrity. In this talk, “Promoting Academic Integrity”, Dr. McCabe will focus on typical patterns of academic dishonesty and academic integrity attitudes based on the general results of his surveys and and compare them to LMU’s results. Based on LMU’s survey results and his research, he will discuss what factors are important for a productive discussion and review of an institution’s culture and policies of academic integrity.
Don McCabe is a Professor of Management and Global Business at Rutgers University in NJ. Over the last twenty-two years he has done extensive research on college cheating, surveying over 250,000 students (including ~20,000 Canadian students) at more than 210 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. He has also surveyed over 40,000 high school students in the United States during the last ten years. His work has been published widely in business, education and sociology journals, including the Canadian Journal of Higher Education, and he is founding president of the Center for Academic Integrity, a consortium of over 300 colleges and universities based at Clemson University who are joined in a united effort to promote academic integrity among college and university students.
