Academic integrity: The faculty and administration of Brooklyn College support an environment free from cheating and plagiarism. Each student is responsible for being aware of what constitutes cheating and plagiarism and for avoiding both. The complete text of the CUNY Academic Integrity Policy and the Brooklyn College procedure for policy implementation can be found at www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/bc/policies. If a faculty member suspects a violation of academic integrity and, upon investigation, confirms that violation, or if the student admits the violation, the faculty member MUST report the violation. Students should be aware that faculty may use plagiarism detection software. If you have questions or doubts about what constitutes plagiarism, please feel free to ask me.
Extensions: Please contact me ahead of the deadline if you need an extension on a written assignment. I do not mind giving extensions, if you contact me ahead of the deadline, but keep in mind that deadlines are a way to scaffold your work and support your learning.
Resubmissions: You may resubmit assignments which you revised based on the feedback provided after the first submission.
Disability support: The Center for Student Disability Services (CSDS) is currently working remotely. In order to receive disability-related academic accommodations students must first be registered with CSDS. Students who have a documented disability or suspect they may have a disability are invited to schedule an interview by calling (718) 951-5538 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have already registered with CSDS, email Josephine.Patterson@brooklyn.cuny.edu or email@example.com to ensure the accommodation email is sent to your professor.
Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment or Violence: Every member of the Brooklyn College community, including students, employees, and visitors, deserves the opportunity to live, learn, and work free from sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, and sexual violence. Brooklyn College encourages individuals who have experienced sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, or sexual violence to report the incident(s) to campus authorities, even if they have reported it to outside law enforcement and regardless of whether the incident(s) occurred on campus. All reports of sexual misconduct or discrimination should be made to Ivana Bologna, Title IX Coordinator (718.951.5000, ext. 3689), and may also be made to Public Safety (719.951.5511), the New York City Police Department (911 or a local NYPD precinct), or Michelle Vargas, Assistant Director of Judicial Affairs, Division of Student Affairs (718.951.5352) as appropriate.
