The Office of the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs is responsible for the overall administration of the Student Academic Ethics policy, in some cases; this includes assigning resolutions to accusations of academic ethics violations, answering faculty and student questions, and conducting academic integrity hearings. The office is a resource for all faculty members who suspect a case of academic dishonesty in both undergraduate and postgraduate situations. If you have any questions during the process, please contact Dr. Kristen McCauliff at

If you need advice or have personal issues, academic difficulties, health problems, have questions about university policies and procedures; you may seek help from the Associate Dean of Students.

For questions concerning disciplinary actions you can inquire at the Office of Student Conduct.
