Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Shortcuts

Posted by on Oct 4, 2021 in Resources | 0 comments

Academic Integrity Matters

When times start to get tough during the semester, it is important to remind yourself that there are no shortcuts to success. It takes dedication and commitment to study hard every day to learn your course material. When we allow ourselves to take shortcuts, we only set ourselves up for even more challenges in the future. Here are a few shortcuts that lead to academic integrity violations that you should avoid:

  • Consulting any online source that provides only the solution to the problem you are working on.
  • Asking a classmate to send their work to you so you can see how they did it.
  • Borrowing excessively from a classmate to complete your own work.
  • Using someone else’s data to complete your assignment.
  • Using code on your assignment that is not your own original work.
  • Reusing an assignment from a previous semester (self-plagiarism).
  • Paying someone to do an assignment for you.

Diversity Difference DII@FSE

The Fulton Schools Diversity Difference program offers workshops for students, faculty and staff aimed at showcasing our diverse community, raising awareness and supporting learning experiences as we work toward creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of the Fulton Schools community.

Join us for the next opportunity in the series for students and student leaders focused on creating a culture of inclusion for students with disabilities:

AccessZone for Students and Student Leaders
Friday, October 8, 2021
10 a.m.–noon
Register to attend

This workshop, presented by ASU’s Student Accessibility and Inclusive Learning Services (SAILS), will focus on increasing awareness of disability, equity, inclusion and universal design in support of students. As we build a culture of inclusion for students with disabilities, the university as a whole benefits. By participating in this training and dialogue, we can learn to become the culture expressed in the ASU Charter: “measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed.”

Please contact Christina Hernandez at cqhernandez@asu.edu or Kae Sawyer at kae.sawyer@asu.edu from the Fulton Schools Academic and Student Affairs to learn more about this series or for workshop recommendations.

2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture: Canceling Student Debt is Anti-Racist (and Why We Must Do It), October 21

Posted by on Sep 29, 2021 in Diversity Difference, Events |

Join the Graduate College and noted educator, journalist and scholar, Andre M. Perry, for this year’s 2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture. Perry’s research focuses on race and structural inequality, education and economic inclusion. He will discuss how centering student debt policy around students of color would help to combat historic systemic racism that has prevented Black people and people of color from gaining the wealth they were denied for centuries. As a result, it is more difficult for Black Americans to pay back their student loans, acquire homes and start businesses. 

Following Perry’s lecture, he will sit down with special guest Battinto Batts Jr., dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, for a question and answer session to include questions from the audience. Questions for Perry can also be submitted in advance through your in-person or virtual registration.

2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture: Canceling Student Debt is Anti-Racist (and Why We Must Do It)
Thursday, October 21, 2021
4–5 p.m.
Attend the live stream or in-person (limited seating) at Old Main (MAIN) Carson Ballroom, Tempe campus [map]
