Welcome to UNC Charlotte: Provost Joan Lorden, PhD

Basic Legal Guidelines for Classroom Policies and Practices: Jesh Humphrey, Vice Chancellor for Institutional Integrity and General Counsel (x75732)

How to be a "Quick Starter": Yvette Huet, PhD, Director of ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office

The Role of Faculty in Responding to Students in Mental Health Needs; Jessalyn Klein, PhD; David Spano, PhD, Center for Counseling and Psychological Services

Responding to Student Behavioral Concerns: Christine Reed Davis, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

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.

Students can choose to "opt out" of signing the form, but that does not eliminate our responsibility to obtain their written consent before submitting their work.  Again, if they choose to opt out of signing the form, then the faculty member is advised to not use the plagiarism program on that  student's work.

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.
