Students with disabilities. The Pennsylvania State University is committed to providing access to a quality education for all students. Penn State welcomes students with disabilities into the University's educational programs. If a student has a disability- related need for modifications or reasonable accommodations in this course, it is the responsibility of the student to first obtain a University accommodation letter confirming the disability and suggesting appropriate remedies. This letter should be obtained from the campus Disability Contact Liaison. The contact person at Penn State Greater Allegheny is Victoria Garwood (Frable 103, 412-675-9070, firstname.lastname@example.org). Students from other Penn State campuses can find their contact person at http://www.equity.psu.edu/ods/dcl.asp. It is encouraged that students request their accommodation needs early in the semester, and once identified, a reasonable accommodation will be implemented in a timely manner. Students may also access the web site for the Office of Disability Services at University Park for more information: http://www.equity.psu.edu/ods/.
PSU Statement on Academic Integrity. According to the University Advising Handbook: "Academic integrity is the pursuit of scholarly activity free from fraud and deception, and is the educational objective of this institution. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, fabrication of information or citations, facilitating acts of academic dishonesty by others, unauthorized possession of examinations, submitting work of another person, or work previously used without informing the instructor, or tampering with the academic work of other students. Any violation of academic integrity will be thoroughly investigated, and where warranted, punitive action will be taken." Students should be aware that standards for documentation and intellectual contribution may depend on the course content and method of teaching, and should consult instructors for guidance.
