Grand Valley State University strives to provide a safe and healthy environment where all students can successfully learn and grow.  It is our goal to help students develop a greater sense of self-awareness and to provide support on their paths toward becoming engaged and productive global citizens.  

We recognize that issues may arise when students make choices that conflict with the values and policies of the University.  We work with students to address these issues, while focusing on what may be causing the behavior. We aim to inform students about all aspects of the conduct process, and ensure fair treatment of everyone involved.

Our office serves as a resource for the entire campus community - students, faculty, and staff.

Research suggests that many students who commit academic misconduct do not do so intentionally. Academic misconduct primarily stems from a lack of understanding and preparation.
During this workshop, participants will learn about GVSU’s Academic Integrity policies and identify best practices for avoiding academic misconduct.

Conflict is inevitable. More often than not, the most difficult conflicts are with our most significant relationships; family, friends, professors, roommates, etc.
During this workshop, participants will explore various pathways to navigate conflict and maintain healthy relationships with those around them.

In life, we’re always told to “do the right thing”.
What do we do when we don’t know what’s right?
Why do we do things when we know they are wrong?
During this workshop, participants will explore a variety of thoughts and ideas that contribute to ethical decision-making.

This session is available for GVSU faculty and staff only.

Addressing academic misconduct is one of the many responsibilities of faculty and staff at GVSU. These conversations with students can be difficult and it is important that faculty and staff follow the procedures as outline in GVSU's Student Code: The Anchor of Student Rights and Responsibilities. This session is designed to equip faculty and staff with the tools needed to address academic misconduct and to review the collaborative partnership with OSSCR as they do so.

This session is available for GVSU faculty and staff only.

As faculty continue to teach courses remotely, maintaining high levels of academic rigor and integrity remains a priority.  Virtual modes of instruction present particular challenges and require new strategies for designing assignments and assessing student learning. This session is designed to provide tangible strategies to promote academic integrity and help students avoid academic misconduct.
