Procedures in Response to Violations of Academic Integrity

This Touro College and University System Academic Integrity Policy applies to all Touro students. Any act in violation of this Policy or any allegation of misconduct related to this Policy involving a student must be reported and addressed in accordance with the adjudication procedures outlined below or those of the student’s school, which may not be less stringent than the requirements and standards set forth in this Policy Statement. 

The Dean of each school shall designate a member of the administration as Chief Academic Integrity Officer (herein referred to as the “CAI Officer”) to oversee the adjudication of violations and to maintain appropriate documentation.  The CAI Officer must be an assistant dean or higher, or another appropriate responsible individual approved by the Provost or Vice President.   The Provost shall designate a Dean responsible for hearing formal resolution appeals (herein referred to as the “Appeals Dean”).  The CAI Officer and the Appeals Dean cannot be the same individual.
