    CUNY-Wide Conference on Academic Integrity

    Eugenio María de Hostos Community College

    Sept. 29, 2017

    Keynote Speaker: Sandra Jamieson, Drew University

    The English Rigor Committee of Hostos CC is excited to be designing an inclusive day that incorporates the voices of CUNY faculty, students, and all branches of student services to promote a culture of intellectual integrity at CUNY. The CUNY-wide Conference on Academic Integrity advocates open discussions of the necessity and value of truth-seeking, critical thinking, curiosity, and analytical acumen. This conference builds on recent work by the Library and other parties at CUNY to create a culture of intellectual rigor and to combat information misdirection. We hope that you will help us to promote this as an integrative conference that addresses the issue of academic integrity at all levels of student college-life.

    We welcome individual or collaborative 15-minute oral presentations, Powerpoint or interactive presentations, as well as lightning roundtable discussions. We are especially interested in pedagogical presentations that promote best practices for preventing plagiarism. Topics for papers in any format may address but are not limited to:

    Designing effective prompts

    Disciplinary Expectations

    STEM and intellectual ownership

    Information literacy and library resources

    Plagiarism Backrooms (paper mills, electronic resources for cheating, Google Docs sharing)

    Technology and plagiarism (Turnitin, SafeAssign)

    Value ecologies (how to talk about or teach value, ethics, integrity)

    Advising and Student Counseling on issues of academic honesty

    Institutional policy and activism

    Plagiarism in professions

    Culture and plagiarism

    Please send questions and/or abstracts of 250-400 words to Jason Buchanan and Michael Cisco at by June 30.
