In the Know

Academic honesty and integrity lie at the heart of any educational enterprise. Students are expected to be honest and forthright in all their academic endeavors. To falsify the results of one’s research, to steal or plagiarize the words or ideas of another person, to cheat on an exam, or to allow or assist another person to commit an act of academic dishonesty corrupts the essential process by which knowledge is advanced. In accordance with University policy, all acts or attempted acts of alleged academic dishonesty must be reported to the Office of Student Conduct.

Take this short quiz to check your understanding of academic integrity.

Expand Your Horizons

All undergraduate students are required to engage in three credits of Discovery Learning Experiences (DLE) under the supervision of a faculty member.  The DLE involves instructional experiences beyond the typical curriculum. One way to fulfill the DLE requirement is to participate in a Study Abroad program.  The Institute for Global Studies coordinates over 70 programs each year, and the courses offered fulfill a wide variety of requirements at UD.  Students have a broad range of options, including debating philosophical questions while gazing at the Parthenon, observing the Australian health care system, and taking photographs in Cuba.

Stop by Trabant Center from 2 – 4 pm on Thursday, February 23 to speak to the faculty directors of over 20 study abroad programs and learn more about financing your trip.

University Studies News

We are excited to announce that Moira Curtis recently joined the UST academic advising staff. Moira comes to us from Montclair State University in New Jersey, but she is originally from the Maryland/Washington, D.C. area. She earned the B.A. in Human Relations from Trinity Washington University and the M.A. in Counseling with a concentration in Higher Education/Student Affairs from Montclair. She is eager to begin working with UST students. A fun fact about Moira is that she taught dance when she was in college and still takes tap classes in her free time.
