Resolving Academic Misconduct by Instructor Admonition

Instructor Filing a Complaint of Academic Misconduct

 
     
     
 

FILING A COMPLAINT OF ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT, OR, WHEN A CASE IS REFERRED TO THE OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT DEAN FOR UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE NEWNAN LSA ACADEMIC ADVISING CENTER

Members of the instructional faculty may choose to file a complaint of academic misconduct with the Office of the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education and Executive Director of the Newnan LSA Academic Advising Center (1213 Angell Hall, 764-7297). When choosing this option, the instructor should not impose any penalty or require any remedial work until the case has been resolved. It is always appropriate, however, to file a complaint in any alleged instance of academic misconduct, and the instructor should do so as soon as practicable from the date of occurrence. Barring unforeseen circumstances, cases will be resolved within the academic term (and typically within a week or two) in which the incident occurs. Once a complaint ha been filed with the Assistant Dean, it may not be withdrawn without the approval of the Assistant Dean. Also, a student against whom a complaint of academic misconduct has been filed may not change registration in the course (e.g., drop the course) in which the complaint is pending or in which a finding of academic misconduct is made.

Instructors should send Assistant Dean Esrold Nurse (1213 Angell Hall; eanurse@umich.edu) either a memorandum or an email with the following information: the student name and identification number; the course division, course number, and section number; a brief description of the nature of the incident; and the proposed grade penalty, if any, for either a specific course assignment(s) or the final course grade. Dean Nurse’s office will then take responsibility for notifying the student, and the student will be asked to schedule an appointment with the Assistant Dean or the Assistant Dean’s designee to discuss the case.
