“This is so lazy as to be dishonest,” said David Rettinger, chairman of the International Center for Academic Integrity and a psychology professor at the University of Mary Washington. “It’s not just a sentence here and there.”

Free Reading Group – Teaching Academic Integrity

The Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service and the Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation are cosponsoring a reading group this year on the topic of Teaching Academic Integrity.

The goal is to help our students understand the importance of integrity in their work by rethinking how we frame integrity in our classes.

The group will meet once per month (September, October, November, Dec/Jan, February, March, April) to discuss two books, James Lang’s Cheating Lessons and Tricia Bertram Gallant’s Academic Integrity in the 21st Century.

If interested in participating, please contact David Rettinger at dretting@umw.edu.

Rettinger to Join ICAI Board

David Rettinger, Executive Director of the Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service and Associate Professor of Psychology, was named to the Executive Board of the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI).

The ICAI was founded to combat cheating, plagiarism and academic dishonesty in higher education. Its mission has since expanded to include the cultivation of cultures of integrity in academic communities throughout the world. ICAI offers assessment services, resources and consultations to its member institutions, and facilitates conversations on academic integrity topics each year at its annual conference.

Dr. Rettinger will join scholars and practitioners of academic integrity education from around the world on the Executive Board.  His three-year term will begin in July 2016.
