Slides from the 9 /17/14 Presentation
Graduate students are required to complete advanc ed disciplinary studies through formal coursework and independent scholars hip to prepare themselves for productive and rewarding careers in diverse settings, not just for academic research positions. The specific makeup a nd details of these programs are established by the respective departments and programs. The establishment of academic standards for evaluating stud ent performance is the responsibility of the faculty comprising the progra m and specifically those who assume responsibility for advising individual students. Establishment of such standards are subject to general universi ty and other policies, procedures, laws and regulations. One important s uch area relates to academic integrity. Each graduate program is expected to have a Graduate Handbook to 'inform students on course and program requ irements, on the timetable for the selection of a faculty advisor and the formation of a guidance committee, on examinations and graduation requir ements and policy for dismissal as required by the Graduate Students Right s and Responsibilities document' according to the Graduate Handbook Templa te. Departmental and Program perspectives concerning academic integrity an d how this is to be communicated to students should be incorporated in eac h handbook.
This first program in the Responsible Conduct of Research series is intended to focus attention on the broad issues of Integrity in Research and Creative Studies that will be discussed in more detail throu ghout the remainder of the series and to stress the importance of conducti ng research with integrity and the consequences when it is not, both at M SU during graduate school and afterward within professional disciplines an d in diverse employment situations.
