From Arts & Sciences Course
I trust every student in this course to fully comply with all of the provisions of the University’s Honor Code. By enrolling in this course, you have agreed to abide by and uphold the Honor System of the University of Virginia, as well as the following policies specific to this course.
All graded assignments must be pledged.
- [In this section, faculty members often list additional policies relating to:
- whether collaboration is permitted on any assignment(s);
- citation expectations for written work;
- what (if any) resources are permitted for use on examinations.]
- [e.g. Plagiarism is considered a violation of the honor code. What is plagiarism? Generally speaking, it is any attempt to take credit for work done by another person. All historians, including undergraduates, must rely on the work of others to shape their own knowledge and interpretations. In their writing they must acknowledge the importance of other works through footnotes and/or direct textual references to influential books, articles, and ideas. Failure to acknowledge the work of others, or transposing sentences, words, and concepts into your own work without using quotation marks or citations can result in plagiarism.]
- [e.g. Working with a professor, tutor, or friend to clarify your ideas and organization for a paper or presentation is generally not plagiarism. Using an outline or thesis given to you by someone else without substantial modification is plagiarism. If you have any questions about what may constitute plagiarism, please consult with me. There is no penalty for honest inquiry or confusion!]
- All suspected violations will be forwarded to the Honor Committee, and you may, at my discretion, receive an immediate zero on that assignment regardless of any action taken by the Honor Committee.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the course Honor policy. If you believe you may have committed an Honor Offense, you may wish to file a Conscientious Retraction by calling the Honor Offices at (434) 924-7602. For your retraction to be considered valid, it must, among other things, be filed with the Honor Committee before you are aware that the act in question has come under suspicion by anyone. More information can be found here. Your College of Arts & Sciences Honor representatives are Evan Berhle (ebb3tf), Conor O'Boyle (cot5zc), Andi Chernau (akc2ya), Brittany Wengel (bew4ke), Michelle Butler (mlb4cc) and Josh Myers (jmm4cm). Faith Lyons, an Honor support officer enrolled in this class, is also available for questions.
