Exceprt from memo sent by Sheila Embleton, Associate Dean, Faculty of Arts regarding Academic Dishonesty: Date: November 1994 1. Academic Dishonesty: As a result of the outcome of a recent case, I need to ask all people who are handling academic dishonesty cases at the departmenta l level to be particularly careful about retaining all relevant evidence. This evidence should then be forwarded along with the file on the case to the Dean' s Office when that stage in the process is reached. In particular, please do n ot think that just because a student has admitted guilt and "signed off" on a p enalty the evdence is no longer relevant. The Chair of the Academic Hearing Co mmittee will still want to see the evidence, and, further, there is alsways the possibility that the case will still go to a hearing for some reason, in which case the evidence will be needed. Do not return the evidence to the student, under any circumstances. To make all this clearer, so that you don't forget when actually handling a case, we have made a slight revision to Form A ("Record of Meeting(s) for Academic Dishonesty Cases").
