Faculty Recommendations for Preventing Plagiarism

Northern's Academic Catalog states that instructors have discretion in addressing incidences of plagiarism and/or cheating and in their classroom, and should consult department chairpersons as needed.

In an effort to track incidences of plagiarism and cheating on campus, the Academic Standards Committee of the Faculty Senate urges faculty members to report incidences of plagiarism and cheating. Your participation allows the committee to keep track of plagiarism and cheating at Northern and evaluate the effectiveness of prevention and intervention programs.  If you have encountered plagiarism and/or cheating in your class, please download and complete the Plagiarism and Cheating Incident Form and then send it to the Academic Standards Committee (academic-sc@nnmc.edu).
