Notre Dame has a strong Undergraduate Academic Code of Honor; students receive an orientation to it before they arrive on campus. As a precondition for course registration, all undergraduates pledge:
As a member of the Notre Dame community, I will not participate in or tolerate academic dishonesty.
The Kaneb Center strongly urges instructors to address plagiarism before it becomes a problem. Take a positive approach; contact us about designing assignments in ways that encourage academic honesty.
At Notre Dame
Technology is available which can check for plagiarism in student work. If an instructor believes this is necessary, the Provost’s Office can provide an individual license to Turnitin.com at university expense. Contact Jeanne Bowen <firstname.lastname@example.org> (631–5716).
