Many campuses are reporting significant spikes in honor code violations, which are often two, three, or even four times as frequent compared to previous semesters. Recent articles in Forbes, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal have chronicled the rapid acceleration of cheating, the scope of which threatens the integrity of higher education and the value of the college degree. To examine the scope of the challenge and to provide clear guidance for addressing it, the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) are co-hosting "Renewing the Legitimacy of Learning: A Symposium on Academic Integrity." Bringing together the voices and experiences of students, faculty, and administrators, this virtual symposium will explore ideas for teaching faculty, considerations for campus IT leaders, and recommendations for honor system participants. Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of the current challenge to academic integrity as well as practical strategies for addressing it within their own institutional contexts.
