Students must follow the Academic and Professional Integrity Policy outlined in the Student Handbook. in addition to the specific Academic and Professional Integrity Policy of the Stillman School of Business:

  1. Dependability: Candidates are reliable, timely, and consistent in their presence and preparation for courses at the university and in their field settings.
  2. Respect and empathy: Candidates are respectful in their address, writing, language, and physical space toward faculty, university staff, school personnel, peers, and students in the field.
  3. Open-mindedness: candidates respect the context and experience of others; developing the skills to use that information in classroom conversation, writing, and lesson planning.
  4. Integrity: candidates submit original work, fully cite all sources associated with the development of their work (including information from the internet), and recognize that the university fully supports the use of anti-plagiarism software in support of academic integrity. (Original student work is expected. Any work containing plagiarized material will result in an automatic “0” for the assignment.)
  5. Passion for the profession: Candidates display, in action, word, and commitment, their passion for the profession of teaching, the right for all children to positive and productive learning environments, and their access to recognition that life as a teacher means dedication to life-long learning.

Plagiarism is wrong. I strongly advise against engaging in any activity that might be considered or misinterpreted as or appear to be plagiarism. This sort of activity includes using someone else’s ideas or work and representing it as your own, failing to give credit to a source of information correctly, and paraphrasing another’s work without credit, among others. Plagiarism also includes using the text or internet to find answers to quiz and/or exam questions and/or collaborating with others when completing a quiz and/or exam.

If you are unsure of what constitutes plagiarism, you will find a good primer on the subject here. Please visit the site and review its materials carefully.

If you are wondering if there are any penalties for plagiarism, please visit the Seton Hall statement on Academic and Professional Integrity linked above.

If I discover that you have engaged in plagiarism, you will fail the course. If I conclude that you knew, or should have known, that your submission needed to be properly sourced or because you negligently did not take the steps necessary to avoid plagiarism, you will fail the course.

This policy includes a statement on the Use of Generative AI.
