Student Rights, Academic Integrity & Grievance Policies

Academic Integrity Guidance

Faculty who are considering reporting an academic integrity violation refer to the Center for Learning and Student Success for more information.

It is strongly recommended that the instructor discusses the matter with the student as part of the investigation process. Once an instructor has determined a violation has likely occurred, the matter must be referred to his or her school/college’s Academic Integrity Coordinator, Dr. Eileen Lantier, Senior Associate Dean for Academics within five business days.

Students can be referred to Syracuse University’s Academic Integrity Policies for information on the Academic Integrity Process.

If students have questions or need direction regarding the Academic Integrity process they should contact James Byrne, Assistant Dean for Student Services.

Syracuse University Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities

Every community has rules and policies that foster safety, security and wellness and it is the goal of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities to accomplish this while promoting learning, awareness, accountability, and service to others. The student conduct process at Syracuse University is designed to provide a fair and engaging process for the resolution of alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct. It is the hope that students who participate in the student conduct process learn about their own decision-making, how their decisions impact both themselves as well as the broader Syracuse University community and that they use the conduct process as a stepping stone for their own engagement as community members. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities wishes each Syracuse University student a positive experience and encourage all University members to support and guide our students as they begin to learn more about themselves and their role in a community. Visit the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities Website for more information.
