Plagiarist or Collaborator? Discussion on April 5 at 12:30

Last semester we held a discussion group to further conversations on academic integrity.  This spring we hope to continue the conversations with a discussion of Rebecca Moore Howard's works (see below). Ms. Howard is a noted author on the topic of authorship, agency and plagiarism. This discussion group meeting will be Tuesday, April 5 beginning at 12:30 pm in the Library Conference Room on the main level. Lunch will be provided. Rebecca Moore Howard will be the keynote presenter at Faculty Development Day on Thursday, May 5, as the final speaker of the Humanities Speakers Institute Series on Authorship, Agency, and Global Citizenship.
