The Faculty and Staff in the College of Community and Public Affairs (CCPA) are committed to serving all enrolled students. The intention is to create an intellectually stimulating, safe, and respectful class atmosphere. In return it is expected that all class participants will honor and respect the opinions and feelings of others.
If you are a student with a disability and wish to request accommodations, please notify the instructor by the second week of class. You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) at 777-2686. Their office is in UU-119. The SSD office makes formal recommendations regarding necessary and appropriate accommodations based on specifically diagnosed disabilities. Information regarding disabilities is treated in a confidential manner.
Currently, there is not a national accrediting body governing student affairs administration programs. However, the American College Personnel Association (ACPA, http://www.myacpa.org) serves as one of the leading organizations for student affairs that provides administration, policy and practice-related oversight in the United States. ACPA also provides a national conference and numerous professional development opportunities for professionals in the field. Students are expected to be familiar with, and adhere to, ACPA’s Code of Ethical Principles and Standards that govern our profession. These Ethical Principles and Standards can be found at http://www.myacpa.org/ethics/statement.cfm.
The Department of Student Affairs Administration takes violations of the Academic Honesty Code very seriously. However, the faculty understands the pressures of graduate school and urges students to seek consultation if they feel they are unable to complete assignments properly in a timely fashion. We recognize that most students do not intend to plagiarize, but do so because of concerns that their work will not “make the grade”.
The Academic Honesty Code can be reviewed online at http://bulletin.binghamton.edu/integrity.htm. In the event a violation of the Honesty Code is suspected, the College of Community and Public Affairs’ procedures for resolving academic honesty cases will be followed. The CCPA Ethics Policies and Procedures can be viewed at the following link: http://www2.binghamton.edu/ccpa/about-the-college/Ethics_and_Integrity_Policies_and_Procedures.pdf.
Students often have questions regarding what constitutes plagiarism. Appendix A in the SAA Student Handbook for 2010-11 provides a handout from Binghamton University’s Writing Center that discusses the appropriate uses of sources in academic writing. Whenever a student doubts the appropriateness of a citation, he or she should consult with the instructor.
