In response to the questions during the scenario discussion regarding VeriCite, Legal has said: Faculty are still required to get written consent forms from the student before submitting the student's paper to VeriCite (or other programs). If the student chooses not to sign the form, then we would advise that the faculty member not submit that student's work to a plagiarism detection service. The suggested syllabus language provided on our website offers some alternatives should a student choose not to sign the form.
NinerCare can be accessed here
NinerCare is a network designed to bring together information in order to identify students who have demonstrated behavior of concern to members of the UNC Charlotte community. This network also allows UNC Charlotte staff and faculty to investigate and then determine if an identified student poses a potential threat to self, others, or the UNC Charlotte community. NinerCare helps to develop an objective, coordinated action plan to collect information, assist the student and protect the University community.
