Eastern's Office of Judicial Affairs

Reporting Academic Misconduct Page - Information on reporting academic misconduct along with a form.

Eastern's Policies on Academic Misconduct - Students should read and understand Eastern’s Academic Misconduct Policy, which can be found in the Eastern Student Handbook. Students are expected to take personal responsibility for their intellectual work and to respect and acknowledge the ideas of others. Academic honesty means doing one’s own work and giving proper credit to others whose work and thought are drawn upon. It is the responsibility of each student to become familiar with what constitutes academic dishonesty and plagiarism, and to avoid all forms of cheating and plagiarism. Students may not engage in any form of academic misconduct, and are responsible for learning how to present the ideas of others in their own work, and avoid all other forms of academic misconduct. For current documentation practices, consult the instructor or a style manual (e.g., APA, MLA).  All violations will be handled under the procedures established in the Academic Misconduct Policy.  From the Director of Judicial Affairs, Angelo Simoni: Please strongly consider placing this statement about academic misconduct in your class syllabus.  Thank you in advance for your assistance.
