• Academic integrity policy toolkit: Academic integrity breach decision makers

     

    Four of the five universities with exemplary academic integrity policies and represented at the EAIP Roundtable (Brisbane, 28 February 2013) recommended that there should be a decision-maker (or decision-makers, depending on the size of the department and the number of cases) located within the faculty with designated authority to determine outcomes for academic integrity breaches. This person might be referred to as an Academic Integrity Officer, Academic Conduct Advisor or Faculty Academic Misconduct Officer (Bretag & Mahmud, in progress).
