• Reporting Academic Misconduct

  • Why should I report incidences of suspected academic misconduct?

    Reporting academic misconduct reinforces our high expectations of student learning and academic integrity by helping students understand the value of academic integrity and the implications of academic misconduct. It also communicates to students who do uphold the honor code that their behavior is valued.

    Reporting academic misconduct helps the Office of Student Conduct see patterns. Because the OSC serves as a central clearinghouse, cases of academic misconduct by individual students in multiple courses and/or academic units that might otherwise be seen as an isolated incidence. Once aware of multiple incidents, the OSC can provide better faculty support.

    When communicating with students regarding possible Honor Code violations, the faculty member should try to meet with the student privately or confer with the student using DU's new email encryption technology since student emails exist outside DU's systems.  Consequently, sensitive email including email related to students grades should be sent encrypted by merely putting "du-confidential" in the Subject line in your DU email to a particular student.  The PowerPoint below shows how this is accomplished.
