Board Members and Ombudspeople

Academic Integrity Board Members

The Academic Integrity Board is composed of both faculty and student members. The board meets to make decisions about membership and about Academic Integrity policies and issues. At hearings, the presence of one of the co-chairs, three student members and three faculty members are required. Student membership on the board changes frequently, and a list of eligible students is maintained by the co-chairs.
