Guidelines for Faculty

  • A secure student login, personalized password, and two-factor authentication (meeting identity management system standards) is required to access online courses and related resources, discussions, assignments and assessments. Information gathered as part of the identity management system for these purposes must be safeguarded carefully to protect student privacy.
  • Online faculty should be made aware of general Touro University policies and procedures on academic integrity and the reporting procedure. In the instance that suspected violations of academic integrity are discovered, the dean of the student’s school must be notified. For undergraduate asynchronous online courses, the Vice President of Online Education must also be notified. These violations will be addressed according to the individual school’s process for addressing academic integrity issues.
  • The link to the Touro University Academic Integrity Policy –provided here (TUS Academic Integrity Policy | Touro University)--must be incorporated by faculty in their course homepage, course syllabi and course outlines. Faculty should give students the opportunity to discuss the Academic Integrity Policy using the course discussion board or chat room.
  • For each course taken in an online environment, students are required to read and check a box in Canvas indicating that they will abide by the Touro Academic Integrity Policy.
