Dear **********,

You have been found in violation of the Lawrence University Honor Code for plagiarism on two homework assignments in ********** with Professor **********.

**********, you have unfairly advanced your academic performance and violated the mutual trust between students and faculty upon which the University depends. Consequently, you have been assigned a sanction of zero on both assignments and “F” in course. You not only unfairly advanced your own academic performance, you also jeopardized the academic integrity of two other students in your course, something we find reprehensible. We found the similarities between your work and the other students’ work too identical to be explained by coincidence, and felt that you could not give a reasonable explanation for them. The sanction represents the severity of the violation and is consistent with the sanctions attached to similar violations in the past.

Be advised that should you be found in violation of the Honor Code again, this letter will be used in determining an appropriate sanction.

The Council wishes to remind you of the importance of confidentiality. Details from the hearing may not be released without the consent of all individuals involved. This includes students and professors.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. The Council trusts that you recognize the seriousness of the violation and the threat it poses to the Lawrence University Honor system. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Honor Council or Dean Gajewski with any questions you may have. You may appeal this decision to the President of the University within one week of receiving this letter.

Sincerely,

The Honor Council
