The provost’s representative (dean of advising and co-curricular programs) is designated by the Faculty and the Board of Trustees to be responsible for the observance and enforcement of the standards of academic honesty. In turn, the provost’s representative has assigned responsibility for the coordination of academic conduct cases to the associate dean of advising and co-curricular programs who generally serves as the case administrator for all allegations related to the Academic Integrity Policy.

Academic Progress Committee

The Academic Progress Committee consists of four tenured members of the faculty, one from each of the four academic divisions; two untenured members of the faculty, one from the natural sciences or engineering and one from social sciences or humanities; and two student members selected annually by Student Government.

The Academic Progress Committee is responsible for hearing cases that are referred to it by the dean of Academic Advising and Co-curricular Programs or in which respondents have elected, in accordance with the procedures laid out in the code, to have their case heard by the committee. For a hearing to take place, at least five committee members (at least three with faculty status) must be present.

Student members deliberate and vote during the committee’s determination of responsibility, but student members do not participate in discussions regarding sanctioning of a respondent. The committee makes its determination by majority vote of those present at each stage of the process.


Please refer to the “Academic Conduct” section of the Student Handbook for all policies and procedures.
