A class devoted to exploring how to be a student of academic integrity.
The Integrity Seminar is held every semester, meeting once a week for six weeks. Led by the Co-Chairs of the Academic Honor Council, this provides students with a safe learning environment to explore academic integrity.
- "Doing what's right isn't always easy, but the right thing will always be best and take you where you want to go. The right thing should be done at all times. When in a group or by yourself. Go hard or go home". (Integrity Seminar Student, 2011).
- "I was embarrassed to be in this group when I walked in the room on the first day because I felt like I was being labled as a cheater. But I soon realized that people make mistakes, and that this seminar wasn't about humiliating me. This seminar has educated me about what having an honor code means to our community and how important it is to have personal integrity at all times becasue my actions don't just affect other students - the choices I make affect our community as a whole". (Integrity Seminar Student, 2009).
- "This seminar showed me that by cheating, I was diminsihing the value of the SMC degree, and I was letting my classmates down by taking the easy way out". (Integrity Seminar Student, 2004).
