Oxford to hold academic integrity conference
Students from a select group of liberal arts institutions will come to Oxford College Feb. 20-21 for "Academic Honor 2004: A Student-Centered Conference" to explore ways to foster academic integrity among their peers. They will discuss challenges, rewards and strategies of creating an honorable campus community.

One feature of particular note is a mock honor code trial which should shed some light on a famously secret and controversial tool in enforcing academic integrity. Sessions will address educating students and faculty about honor codes, technology and cheating, and the challenges of being peer judges or faculty/staff advisors.

Confirmed participants include students and faculty from Emory, Birmingham Southern, LaGrange, Lyon,Wesle-yan and Davidson colleges and

University of the South. The conference's keynote address will be held at 5:30 p.m., Feb. 21. For more information, contact Joe Moon, Oxford dean for campus life and community affairs, at 770-784-8391 or jmoon@emory.edu.
