Utah Tech University, like all universities, functions best when its members treat one another with honesty, fairness, respect, and trust. Fair assessment of student work is a critical factor in creating an optimal learning environment. When students are involved in academic dishonesty, the environment becomes less than optimal.
Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty constitute a serious violation of University conduct regulations. Faculty have the responsibility to discourage students from cheating and to appropriately deal with cheating when it is detected. They are expected to instill in their students a respect for integrity and a desire to behave honestly.
Cheating is a form of lying, thus students who cheat are liars. The purpose of this website is to assist faculty members to learn ways to reduce the incidences of cheating in their courses.
