Honor and Integrity System

Honor and Integrity System Professional Development

Introductions for Professional Development Modules

Honor Council professional development should be taken seriously by each member of the Honor Council.

If after you have completed the professional development modules you decide you no longer desire to be on the Honor Council, please inform the Director steveks@ksu.edu in the case of the Honor Council. It is imperative that all members understand and agree to perform the duties and responsibilities associated with the position.

In order to expedite your time in understanding the Honor & Integrity System and its procedures, we offer this on-line version of professional development. It is suggested you take anywhere from thirty to sixty (30-60) minutes for each of the three modules. This allows each Honor Council member to complete professional development at his/her convenience. This is not the only professional development that takes place. The Honor Council Chair and the Honor and Integrity System office staff design and present professional development sessions during both fall and spring semesters for new members. Professional Development tips are often given on the HC Listserv as well and via the Honor Council "course" via K-State Online. Please access this site for interactive discussions on current topics in academic integrity. Any member who wants one-on-one professional development need only call to schedule an appointment.


When you have completed the modules, please email the Honor & Integrity System Office an attachment of this Professional Development Form (Word format document). Click on the module title to go directly to the module.
