What Past Students Have Said About Seminar:
“It was welcoming that our individual cases were not brought up and that we were clearly here to discuss and learn about Academic Integrity & not just as punishment. The openness and friendly discussions were good.”
“I really appreciated the instructor's and TA's objectiveness and how they connected to the students. They weren't strictly 'by-the-rules' in that they considered arguments both for and against the rules of the university. I thought it widened my perspective about academic integrity.”
“I liked the way the instructor felt comfortable with the students an asked us to participate. That played a major role in my understanding.”
“I honestly thought the seminar would be boring and I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging it was and how friendly the instructor and peer educators were. I immediately felt like I could talk to them. The seminar made me think of things in ways I had never approached before.”
