Confronting Cheating: A Legal Primer and Tool Kit

Confronting Cheating: A Legal Primer and Tool Kit

Learn how to inoculate your college or university against the cheating epidemic. Authored by two experts in the field of academic cheating, it cuts through the legalese and gives you practical advice.

A cheating epidemic has descended upon colleges and universities, and it poses a danger to the health of your school.

Cheating strikes at the core of your school's integrity. It creates an unethical environment among your students, and ultimately diminishes the quality and reputation of your institution.

What's fueling the epidemic and why do you need to take action sooner than later?

Technology is making cheating easier than ever before

  • New electronic tools and techniques have made cheating too convenient for students and too difficult for faculty to monitor.

Some students are more interested in a diploma than an education

  • For many students, the pursuit of knowledge has taken a back seat to the pursuit of a big salary. A diploma is the ticket to a high-paying job, and many will take the easiest route to get it.

Legal issues are causing confusion and inaction

  • Administrators are wary of a legal misstep whenever a case of cheating arises. Is prosecuting a cheating case worth a lawsuit in return? If you're not prepared, your school faces that possibility.
