The University of Illinois is dedicated to learning and research, and hence is committed to truth and accuracy. Integrity and intellectual honesty in scholarship and scientific investigation are, therefore, of paramount importance. These standards require intellectual honesty in conducting research, writing of research results, and relations with colleagues. Graduate students may be faced with difficult choices regarding academic integrity in their various roles as student, teacher, and researcher. If this is the case, they should seek the advice and experience of their faculty advisors and the Graduate College staff.
The University publishes two documents that contain specific definitions of misconduct (such as plagiarism, falsification of data, etc.), procedures used for investigation of charges, and the consequences of that conduct. Students are governed by the Student Disciplinary Procedures and faculty are governed by the Policies and Procedures for Academic Integrity.
Student Disciplinary Procedures
The Student Disciplinary Procedures (December 1985) provide a mechanism for review when a student is charged with an infraction of the disciplinary code. It describes just causes for disciplinary action, outlines the procedures for filing a complaint or responding to one, lists the possible sanctions, and describes the appeal process.
