Academic Integrity Committee

The Academic Integrity Committee makes recommendations to the Provost regarding the Academic Integrity Policy and the process for review of infringements of the policy. The committee reviews alleged cases of student plagiarism and/or academic dishonesty that are referred to the committee and that take place in the context of a course, program, or academic activity in the College. Plagiarism and Academic Dishonesty are a direct violation of the Otis Code of Conduct.

The Academic Integrity Committee consists of representatives from Liberal Arts and Sciences, the studio departments, and Student Affairs. The chair of the Committee is determined by its members. No fewer than three committee members will review a case of plagiarism or academic dishonesty or misconduct.

All accounts of academic misconduct should be reported to the Dean of Student Affairs, Laura Kiralla via the following form:

Academic Misconduct Complaint Form

Process for Review

All accounts of academic misconduct are reported to the Chair of Academic Integrity Committee by completing an Academic Misconduct Complaint Form. Evidence that supports the charge of academic misconduct should be included with the report. Any staff, faculty, or student may file an Academic Misconduct Complaint Form.

Once accused, the student will be contacted to appear before the committee to share his/her perspective and to answer questions regarding the case.

Within seven days of the review, the committee will make a recommendation that is communicated to the student, the faculty, the department chair and to the Dean of Student Affairs in an official letter.

The following recommendation(s) may be imposed by the Academic Integrity Committee:

  • No action
  • Intellectual Dishonesty Project
  • Failing grade on the plagiarized assignment
  • Failing the class
  • Loss of privileges or exclusion from academic activity or program
  • Dismissal from the College

Upon their recommendations, formal conduct sanctions up to and including dismissal from the College may be imposed by the College Code of Conduct Committee.

All students can appeal the decision of the Academic Integrity Committee in writing to the Chair of Liberal Arts and Sciences within seven days of the delivery of the letter.

Additional recommendations may be made at the discretion of the Committee and with the approval of the Associate Provost and the Dean of Student Affairs.
