All members of the East Carolina University community have a responsibility to protect the integrity of the university. To fulfill this responsibility community members need to be familiar with the Academic Integrity Policy and report suspected academic integrity violations to the appropriate authority. Faculty members who suspect a student has violated the academic integrity policy are expected to follow the "Procedures for Responding to a Suspected Academic Integrity Violation" in the Academic Integrity Policy which is located in the faculty manual. A brief summary of the procedures are provided below.
Faculty members addressing a potential academic integrity violation should review the full policy for specific procedures.
Violations that involve multiple students should be reported to OSRR. OSRR reserves the right to refer the case to the UCAI for an Academic Integrity Board (AIB) hearing.
Students with repeated academic integrity violations will be referred to the UCAI for an AIB hearing to consider more severe penalties.
Students may appeal the decision reached by a faculty member or the AIB if one of the following "Conditions for Appeal" applies:
Students must complete the Academic Integrity Violation Appeal Form. This form is reviewed by a three-member panel to determine if it should be forwarded to the Academic Integrity Appeal Board (AIAB).
