Academic Integrity:

All members of the Juniata College community share responsibility for establishing and maintaining appropriate standards of academic honesty and integrity. Using another writer's published or unpublished words and ideas and representing them as your own, without giving credit and acknowledging your source, is an act of academic dishonesty. Juniata’s Academic Integrity Policy:

Note: As appropriate, you might highlight or describe the kinds of academic dishonesty most likely to occur in your discipline or course types; it might also make more sense to discuss this with your class in addition or instead of detailing it in the syllabus.


Student Accessibility:

Juniata is committed to provide equitable access for student learning.  To arrange for an accommodation based on a documented medical condition, mental health condition or learning disability (or if you suspect you have one), please contact please contact I encourage you to confirm that the office has received a copy of your accommodation letter and schedule a time for us to meet to discuss your needs. It is best to submit accommodation requests before the semester begins, although requests can be made at any time during the semester.


Sex Discrimination/Sexual Harassment/Sexual Violence:

Juniata College affirms the rights of all to live in a community free of interpersonal violence and seeks to connect individuals with the highest quality professional support and guidance when such acts occur.  College policy is compliant with federal Title IX law that prohibits discrimination, harassment and violence based on sex and gender (including sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking, sexual exploitation and retaliation).  If you or someone you know has been the target of sex discrimination, harassment or sexual violence, you can receive confidential support and guidance from the Office for the Prevention of Interpersonal Violence (the SPoT, Ellis Hall), staff of the Juniata Counseling Services (814-641-3353), the College medical staff (814-641-3410), the College Chaplain (814-641-3360) or from Huntingdon House (domestic/dating violence/stalking hotline at 814-643-2801) or the Abuse Network (sexual assault hotline at 814-506-8237).  Non-confidential reports can be directed to Matthew Damschroder, Acting Title IX Coordinator (Founders Hall, 814-641-3157, or to one of the other Deans in the Dean of Students Office, Founders Hall. You can also report to Huntingdon Borough Police at 814-643-3960 or 911.  Except as noted above, all Juniata professors and staff are designated as responsible employees (non-confidential) and are required to report sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator.  Every effort will be made to protect your privacy and confidentiality, to the greatest extent possible, while balancing our collective efforts to make our campus a safer place for everyone.
