Description:

Academic Honesty in the American Education System

The concept of academic honesty varies across all cultures and adjusting to the American standard of academic honesty can create stress for many international students.  In this interactive workshop, you will gain an understanding of the meaning of academic honesty in the American higher education system in order to avoid unintentional acts of plagiarism or cheating.  We will continue the discussion of the cultural adjustment process, too. We will also be joined by guest speaker Tony Futia, Director of Student Life and Development, to discuss and review the importance of student conduct.

New F-1 international students are required to attend; attendance is optional for continuing F-1 students.
