Can You Plagiarize Yourself? - Join the Conversation!

The SGA Academic Affairs Committee in partnership with the Task Force on Academic Integrity will be sponsoring a new series of STUDENT LED conversations on ethical dilemmas having to do with academic integrity issues. The first is on the question: Can you plagiarize yourself? This question has been posed on large format posters with black markers encouraging students to respond. At each session, the posters will be gathered, and used as a starting point for the discussion. Summary accounts of points made will be shared with the Task Force responsible for formulating AI policies. SGA AA Chair Melanie Rosner and Task Force member Deana Gursky, will facilitate the discussion. Join the Conversation
