Plagiarism Awareness

What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is “taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own,” according to the Oxford Dictionary of English. It happens more than you think and can be both intentional and unintentional. It is, however, a violation of the Student Conduct Standards and can result in discipline up to a note in your permanent record and a zero on the assignment that included plagiarism. We have provided some resources below from the library and an article from The Campus Well to help educate you on this issue and how to avoid plagiarizing in the future.
