As with many institutions nationally, Humboldt has seen an increase in issues around academic honesty over the last year.  In this FLC, we will dig deeply into this topic - Why do students cheat? How can we create a campus culture that reinforces our commitment to academic honesty?  What classroom structures can we deploy that will help prevent it? This learning community will explore, curate, and/or develop resources that can be used across campus in our ongoing efforts to strengthen academic honesty at Humboldt. 

The FLC met virtually five times during Spring 2021:

  • 90-minute sessions
  • March 10, March 24, April 7, April 21, and May 5
  • Wednesdays 9:00-10:30 am

Participant Commitments:

  • Participate in five live sessions
  • Read Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Lang, 2013) (free ebook link will be provided)
