Work Submitted to More Than One Course


The Academic Senate recently passed a resolution addressing the matter of work submitted to more than one course.  The resolution is as follows:


Work that has been submitted in partial or complete fulfillment of the requirements of one course and accepted for credit may not be submitted towards the requirements of another course without the permission of the instructor upon subsequent submission or the permission of both instructors upon concurrent submissions.


This resolution defines an approach which is essentially sound and it is a statement of a good principle.  I am asking that this matter be handled, as it should be, in the Departments and Schools and that all of us be mindful of this.
