Academic Integrity / Academic Judiciary

Banner for Academic Integrity


The LSA undergraduate academic community, like all communities, functions best when its members treat one another with honesty, fairness, respect, and trust. The College holds all members of its community to high standards of scholarship and integrity. To accomplish its mission of providing an optimal educational environment and developing leaders of society, the College promotes the assumption of personal responsibility and integrity and prohibits all forms of academic dishonesty and misconduct. Academic dishonesty may be understood as any action or attempted action that may result in creating an unfair academic advantage for oneself or an unfair academic advantage or disadvantage for any other member or members of the academic community. Conduct, without regard to motive, that violates the academic integrity and ethical standards of the College community cannot be tolerated. The College seeks vigorously to achieve compliance with its community standards of academic integrity. Violations of the standards will not be tolerated and will result in serious consequences and disciplinary action.


Among the primary responsibilities of the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education and Executive Director of the Newnan LSA Academic Advising Center is leadership of the LSA Academic Judiciary Committee and oversight of the academic judiciary processes in the College. The Assistant Dean is responsible for ensuring that a fair and judicious process exists for adjudicating cases of academic misconduct when the LSA Community Standards of Academic Integrity may have been violated. The Office of the Assistant Dean works to promote and maintain a high degree of academic integrity in the College.
