University Centre  Alumni Auditorium 85 University 
(A reception will follow the presentation)

11th Annual Kesarwani Conference
Promoting Academic Integrity in the Internet Age 


Professor Don McCabe will discuss the results of his ongoing series of 
student and faculty surveys of academic dishonesty in which he has 
surveyed over 50,000 students at more than 100 college and university 
campuses in the U.S. and Canada. In particular, he will focus on the 
results of a recently completed Internet survey of over 25,000 
undergraduate students, 3,000 graduate students, 4,000 faculty and 1,000 
teaching assistants at 11 Canadian and 19 U.S. colleges and universities. 
He will highlight the growing problem of Internet plagiarism and the 
increasing incidence of the use of calculators, cell phones and 
electronic technologies by students to cheat on tests and examinations.  

Utilizing data from his decade long work, he will discuss strategies 
being used on a growing number of campuses in the U.S. to change student, 
and faculty, attitudes concerning academic dishonesty. He will place a 
particular emphasis on the concept of modified honor codes, a strategy 
gaining increasing popularity among major U.S. universities.  


Don McCabe is a Professor of Organization Management at Rutgers 
University. He is also the founding president of the Center for Academic 
Integrity, a consortium of over 300 colleges and universities who are 
joined in a united effort to promote academic integrity among college and 
university students.
