All students, faculty members and staff members are expected to report violations of the Honor Code. In addressing an alleged violation, the faculty member of the class affected by the violation may either handle the matter directly with the accused student or refer the case to the Honor Council. (Violations being referred to the Honor Council must be referred within 21 days of discovery of the violation.) In all cases, the incident and sanction(s) must be reported to the Office of Academic Integrity. (Student Conduct Administration)
For faculty members, there are a host of systems that Baylor uses to help us identify the students that are most in need of academic support and awareness. Studies have shown that members of faculty have tremendous influence in challenging students to perform at their best in the classroom. Certainly there are students that do not respond to faculty outreach, but it is our hope that faculty employ outreach as the first action when concerned about a student. If a student is unresponsive or the conversation with the student did not alleviate the concerns, please alert the staff in the Paul L. Foster Success Center by submitting an Early Alert. (Paul L. Foster Success Center)
