Construction Management Academic Integrity
Construction Management Academic Integrity Policy
Department of Construction Management – Academic Integrity Policy
Students in the Department of Construction Management are afforded a variety of opportunities to be involved in clubs, compete on teams, hold leadership positions, attend career fairs, and represent one of the best Construction Management programs in the country. Each time you, as a student, interact with a community or industry member, you serve as an ambassador for your peers, faculty, and staff of the CM program and Colorado State University.
You have an opportunity to mold people’s opinions, including those of industry members, recruiters, private scholarship donors, CM Cares recipients, the Dean of our college, or donors to the department as a whole. Needless to say, a positive impression of CM is preferable to a negative one.
Participation in clubs, teams, leadership, career fairs, CM Cares, and receipt of department scholarships are privileges and an honor, and we cannot accept anything less than the very best from those who represent us. Our ambassadors must be responsible, organized, motivated, and professional.
But beyond that, the most important quality our student representatives must possess is integrity. While there are many indicators of integrity, academic honesty is perhaps the most relevant to the student body.
Academic integrity is fairly straightforward: we do our own work. We don’t take work from other students or alumni, and we don’t give our work away to someone else.
As a construction management student, it is essential that you take pride in your education and hold yourself to the highest ethical standards. You are privileged to be part of one of the best construction programs in the country, and it is an honor to represent your peers and the department within and outside of CSU.
As a program, we have an opportunity to create a culture of honesty and integrity, and we have the responsibility to expect nothing but the best from each other.
Effective Dec. 1, 2014, the Department of Construction Management will adhere to the following policy and consequences regarding academic integrity. A breach in academic integrity will result in an evaluation to determine the context and severity of the breach.
Following the evaluation, the breach of academic integrity will result in a loss of privileges within the department for an appropriate period of time. These may include, but are not limited to:
- Loss of participation in the CM Career Fair and on-campus recruitment services provided by the CM Placement Office
- Loss of participation in a competition team
- Loss of leadership as a club officer
- Loss of leadership as a member of the CMBoD
- Loss of participation in the CM Cares class
- Failure of the class (potential effect on graduation)
These penalties are in addition to any and all penalties assessed by the University in accordance with the Academic Integrity Policy found in section 1.6 of the General Catalog
University Academic Integrity Policies
All CON courses will adhere to the CSU’s Academic Integrity Policy as found in the General Catalog and the Student Conduct Code. At a minimum, violations will result in a grading penalty with instructor option to report to the Student Resolution Center – Conduct Services.
