Faculty Manual on Academic Integrity


Learning with Integrity, A Manual on Academic Integrity for Faculty


From:            Craig Wheeland, Vice Provost for Academics

To:                 New Faculty

Subject:        Academic Honesty and Integrity

Date:              February 15, 2018


As you will discover, Villanova students are hard-working and disciplined young people.  As faculty members, one of the most important ways that we can support their continued moral development is to insist on a culture where students do their work honestly and avoid dishonest behaviors such as cheating, plagiarism, or unauthorized collaboration.  Each year we do have a few students who, for one reason or another, violate our expectations.  It is important that we both sanction and educate those students, both for their own benefit, and to support the large majority of our students who learn with integrity. 

This booklet is designed to introduce you to the ways that we reinforce academic integrity at Villanova.  Please use this booklet as part of your efforts to set the highest possible standards for academic integrity in your own classes.  The booklet covers these topics:

  1. Frequently Asked Questions
  2. A Form for reporting academic integrity violations
  3. Tips for avoiding academic integrity problems in your classes
  4. Villanova's program for Educating Students Responsible for an Integrity Code Violation
  5. Villanova’s Academic Integrity Code
  6. Villanova's Academic Integrity Policy
  7. Flow Chart Summarizing the Process
  8. Summary of Procedures for Appeal
