||Elem. & Early Childhood Education
||School of Education
About 4 meetings were held in the fall semester, and 5 in the spring.
In addition, due to the difficulty of getting a full body of members at
meetings, much discussion was carried out by email. No formal minutes
were taken at the meetings. Average attendance was about four members.
Motions forwarded to Senate:
This year focused on 1) reconsidering the recommended honor code
sanctions, and required reporting by students of observed violations of
the honor code, 2) addressing potential overlap of the proposed honor
system with the Student Code of Conduct, 3) communicating with APSCUF-MU
on potential conflicts between the proposed academic honor system and
APSCUF faculty rights and freedoms, 4) developing a plan for
implementation of the proposed honor system, and 5) rewriting the present
academic dishonesty brochures. All have been completed to date with the
exception of items 3 and 5.
Matters currently in committee:
1) The Honor Code Committee is awaiting the APSCUF determination as to
whether the proposed honor system represents a violation of faculty rights
and freedoms. 2) The Honor Code Committee is in the process of rewriting
of the present academic dishonesty brochures, at the recommendation of
Associate Provost Carol Phillips.
Meeting as necessary to address faculty/administrative concern for
recommendation, which should be submitted within the next few months.
