Academic Integrity Committee
The Academic Integrity Committee is responsible for increasing the visibility of the Honor Code and incorporating integrity into university culture. Committee members have the opportunity to research integrity at various universities as well as give feedback regarding their own educational experiences in order to further the development of AIC. The committee will work with Student Judicial Services and other administrators in writing legislation and implementing university-wide programs, such as IntegrityUT Week, in order to promote integrity at the university.

Issues Committee is Currently Focusing On
AIC focuses on issues surrounding the status of academic integrity on the UT campus. This year AIC hopes to critically evaluate the effectiveness of UT’s current Honor Code by forming a “Honor Code Task Force” which will compromise of members from UT’s faculty, students and administration. The aim of this committee will not only be to evaluate the effectiveness of the Honor Code, but also to evaluate and suggest any changes that might need to take place in order to create a more effective Honor Code. Another initiative that AIC is strongly pursuing this year is assessing the current procedures of the Student Judicial Services (SJS). AIC hopes to work closely with the newly formed Student Conduct Advisory Committee (SCAC) in order to tackle issues with SJS procedural practices. Another aim of this initiative is to allow more room for student involvement in the allegation process of issues pertaining to academic dishonesty.
Current Committee Legislative Initiatives
Tentatively, this year AIC has three main legislative initiatives. These initiatives range widely and include issues such as: creation of an Honor Code Task Force to obtain an understanding of the effectiveness of the current Honor Code, developing an integrity module for Summer Orientation and UGS Signature Courses, and the creation of an AIC liaison in each College Council to foster a micro-scale knowledge of each individual college’s issues surrounding their academic atmosphere.
