Integrity is important here at the University of Tennessee. Student’s represent UT wherever they are. SCCS promotes and upholds the value of integrity and its importance to our campus through thoughtful discussion that encourages critical thinking by our campus members.
From file sharing to research misconduct, academic dishonesty represents a broad range of behaviors. SCCS aims to clarify the University’s expectations surrounding academic integrity. Specific examples of academic dishonesty and strategies to avoid them will be provided.
Hazing presents an immense and immediate threat to the student population and may be found at nearly all levels and types of organizations. SCCS intends to increase understanding of hazing and how to avoid it. Hazing education efforts will focus on preventing and recognizing hazing and intervention strategies.
