Addressing Academic Dishonesty and Plagiarism in Graduate Education
Yes, this is a difficult subject. Academic dishonesty, and plagiarism in particular, is a growing problem on campuses everywhere, and it's a problem often identified only with undergraduate, rather than graduate, education. While rates of plagiarism are lower among graduate students than undergraduate students, some sources have reported recently that they are not substantially lower.
The Graduate School will be spending time this summer researching how other institutions handle academic dishonesty in graduate education. In preparation for this effort, we'd like to invite you to participate in a campus-wide discussion exploring how academic dishonesty and plagiarism emerges and is addressed in our own graduate community. We want to know more about what you're seeing, experiencing, and doing. We want to learn more about your concerns as partners in our pursuit and promotion of scholarly integrity in graduate studies. And we'd want to hear your ideas about what more we can do together to prevent both intentional and unintentional plagiarism in graduate education.
