NYC COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY STATEMENT ON ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
Students and all others who work with information, ideas, texts, images, music, inventions, and other intellectual property owe their audience and sources accuracy and honesty in using, crediting, and citing sources. As a community of intellectual and professional workers, the College recognizes its responsibility for providing instruction in information literacy and academic integrity, offering models of good practice, and responding vigilantly and appropriately to infractions of academic integrity.

As stated in the Academic Integrity Policy Manual,
“academic dishonesty occurs when individuals plagiarize or cheat in the course of their academic work. Plagiarism is the presenting of someone else’s ideas without proper credit or attribution.

STATEMENT OF CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR
Each student has the right to study and learn in a comfortable, safe, supportive environment that promotes self-esteem – free of fear, humiliation, intimidation, offensive or suggestive language.
Students who participate in this class with their camera on or use a profile image are agreeing to have their video or image recorded solely for the purpose of creating a record for students enrolled in the class to refer to, including those enrolled students who are unable to attend live. If you are unwilling to consent to have your profile or video image recorded, be sure to keep your camera off and do not use a profile image. Likewise, students who un-mute during class and participate orally are agreeing to have their voices recorded. If you are not willing to consent to have your voice recorded during class, you will need to keep your mute button activated and communicate exclusively using the “chat” feature, which allows students to type questions and comments live.
Students are NOT permitted to record any part of the class or office hours. This includes screenshots on Zoom. If there is a need to record for some reason, students must get permission from the professor via email BEFORE the recording takes place.
Per college policy, students will only communicate with the professor and other members of the college community via their City Tech email address (the one that ends with @mail.citytech.cuny.edu) and Blackboard. Most emails receive a response within 48 hours—if you don’t receive a response after two days, check the email address (and spelling), and email again. Many students find that the best way to keep track of their email is to download the Outlook app on their phone.
**Successful students check their email and Blackboard daily!**
