INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR ACADEMIC INTEGRITY (ICAI)
Academic Integrity Office is recruiting faculty and student volunteers
The AIO is in the process of recruiting new members, both faculty and students, for the Academic Integrity Council (AIC). The Academic Integrity Council’s mandate is to promote and uphold academic integrity at Ryerson. AIC members participate in educational activities, conduct hearings concerning student appeals of academic misconduct decisions, and determine penalties related to progressive discipline for multiple acts of academic misconduct. Panels consisting of two faculty members and a student, all of whom are trained by the Academic Integrity Office, hold hearings.
We are also in the process of recruiting faculty to act as Designated Decision Makers (DDMs). DDMs handle cases of potential academic misconduct that have been forwarded by faculty members who do not wish or are unable to pursue the matter themselves. Once the case is handed over, the DDM takes on the role and associated responsibilities of the faculty member for that case.
