|Scholarly Forum speaker to discuss academic integrity|
The Graduate School is very pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker for the Scholarly Forum will be Donald L. McCabe, professor of management and global business in the Rutgers University Business School. His lecture, “Promoting Academic Integrity – What the Research Suggests” is at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl. Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m.
Dr. McCabe, who has a background in corporate marketing, received his doctorate in management from NYU and has worked in the academic arena for the past 20 years. He has more than 50 publications in education, sociology and ethics journals, and is in high demand as an invited presenter at national and international universities. His areas of expertise include ethical decision making with an emphasis on the relationship between college education and ethical development, and student cheating in college.
Joseph Benoit, dean of the graduate school, said, “We are very fortunate to have Dr. McCabe on campus presenting to our faculty and students. The issue of academic integrity is central to our business as a University, and Dr. McCabe has worked closely with us throughout the recent campus-wide online survey on academic integrity. I encourage our academic community, students, faculty and staff, to attend this presentation.”
In addition to Dr. McCabe’s presentation, the Scholarly Forum will highlight other faculty and student activities throughout the three days of events. It is not too late to get involved. The deadline for submissions of presentations and exhibits is Monday, Feb. 5. Submission forms and guidelines can be found online on the Scholarly Forum page at www.graduateschool.und.edu.
