Committees and Councils


The Touro College and University System (TCUS) Academic Integrity Council was appointed by the President in the summer of 2012 to coincide with the ratification of the newly-formulated TCUS Academic Integrity Policy. This Policy defines academic integrity and its violations, describes best practices in promoting academic integrity in traditional and in online education, and delineates uniform procedures in the resolution of academic integrity violations. The TCUS Council is charged with monitoring and ensuring that the Academic Integrity Policy is effectively implemented, and fairly and uniformly applied throughout the Touro College and University System.

Specific charges of the Academic Integrity Council include:

  1. Monitor adoption of the TCUS Academic Integrity Policy by the Deans of all Touro Schools or Divisions.
  2. Maintain information provided by the Deans of all Touro Schools or Divisions regarding the identity of the Dean designated as responsible for Academic Integrity and the composition of the individual school Academic Integrity Committee.
  3. Monitor the broad dissemination of the TCUS Academic Integrity Policy.
  4. Oversee and report to the President annually on the implementation of the Academic Integrity Policy throughout the Touro College and University System.
  5. Collect reports on the resolution of academic integrity issues from the various units of the TCUS.
  6. Annually, assess the collected reports for fairness and uniform resolution of similar issues, and report to the President.
  7. Based on its assessment, recommend to the President any changes to the TCUS Academic Integrity Policy.
  8. Draft an Academic Integrity Statement that would be included in all course syllabi.
  9. Draft an Honor Statement that would be adopted by Divisions and Schools of the TCUS for use in their individual program.
