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

You have been found in violation of the Lawrence University Honor Code for plagiarism on your ********** paper in ********** with Professor **********. The construction and wording of your paper were nearly identical to those of a secondary source. The ideas expressed in the paper matched those of the secondary source, and no citation was offered. The sanction represents the severity of the violation and is consistent with the sanctions attached to similar violations in the past.

**********, you have unfairly advanced your academic performance and violated the mutual trust between students and faculty upon which the Unviersity depends. Consequently, you have been assigned a sanction of zero on assignment and one-letter grade reduction in course. Additionally, you have been assigned an educational sanction. You are expected to meet with Gajewski by January 17 to discuss proper citation. If you fail to meet with Dean Gajewski by this date, you will receive an additional one-letter grade reduction in course.

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 represented by:

Carolynn Dude
