An erosion of confidence in higher education institutions, particularly community colleges, is coming at a time when it can be ill-afforded as education costs increase and federal and public funding decrease. It is more critical than ever that we demonstrate integrity, honesty, and character-building within our community colleges. In this highly introspective book, author Karén Clos Bleeker takes a comprehensive and thoughtprovoking look at academic dishonesty. Discover • Precise explanations of what defines academic dishonesty and why it happens • Effects of dishonesty and an understanding of why it is essential to address them • Prevalence: just how pervasive and prevalent is it? • What has been done to address the issue and what else should or can be done? You will also find concrete examples, both positive and negative, as well as resources and recommendations to help community colleges take the measures needed to ensure academic integrity on their campuses.
