Academic Integrity Week: Avoiding Unintentional Plagiarism: When to cite source material in your written work.

Presenter(s):
Dr. Mike Palmquist
Description:
Students often stumble into plagiarism in their academic work without fully understanding the expectations at a university such as CSU. Misunderstanding often arises as a result of different levels of preparation from high school or as a result of scholarly traditions of other countries. This session will explain the concepts and resources to help students determine what is considered plagiarism here. Particular guidance will be given for summarizing and paraphrasing without committing academic misconduct. Who Should Attend: Students who are unsure about when to include a citation in their academic papers. New students and International Students are particularly encouraged to attend.
