  The last opportunity to drop this course with a grade of “W” is 4:00pm, March 10, 2014.

Refer to the Undergraduate Bulletin for details about receiving a grade of “Incomplete” in a course.  In an emergency or extenuating circumstance, a student may request a grade of “Incomplete” in a course before grades are submitted.  If the instructor grants the “Incomplete,” the student has until thirty (30) days after the beginning of the next long semester to complete the course requirements.  If the student does not complete the course requirements within the deadline, the grade of “Incomplete” will automatically convert into a grade of “F.”

 

CLASS ACTIVITIES & ASSIGNMENTS

 

Attendance

This is an online course and there are no mandatory sessions.  However, the student should be vigilant in logging onto Desire2Learn on a daily basis.  Regular checks will ensure that messages from the instructor are received in a timely manner. This course is on a schedule that will be strictly adhered to; See the Course Schedule for specific information about activities and due dates.

 

The instructor will be available to meet face-to-face with any interested students on TBA.  This meeting is optional and must be confirmed by email ahead of time with the instructor.

 

 

Participation

It is critical that each student stay enrolled in the course.  Dropping this course can seriously affect the progress of other students, so weigh this very carefully when deciding. Student participation, determined by the instructor, is reflected in each grade item other than quizzes. There will be a GROUP LEADER for each Group assignment. Your professor will determine the group leaders based on a number you are assigned.  For example, if you are Student # 1 in your group, you will be the leader for group project #1.  Each individual student is responsible for their portion of each group assignment. If the group leader does not have your portion of the assignment by the time the group agrees to post prior to or on the due date, the individual who did not participate will receive a zero.  Partial participation will be determined by the instructor by what is posted.  Any issues with grades on group assignments should be addressed with the instructor.

 

On-line Library Use Video

After you have completed viewing this video, go to the Library Video quiz. Type in the following “I have reviewed the Library Video.” This will open the rest of the course to you. You will not be able to proceed within the course, until this has been completed.

 

Discussion Board

The discussion boards have been created to allow easy access for communication between group members.  The discussion boards need to be accessed and reviewed by each group member on a daily basis to maintain consistent communication between group members.  In addition to your group assignments, you will also utilize the discussion boards during the first week of class for your introductions.

 

Exams

There will be four exams in this class. These will be considered open book, as you may use your assigned resources, including the quantitative and qualitative articles, powerpoints, textbook readings, as well as additional resources posted by your professor.  These exams will consist of multiple choice questions.  Your exams will be timed and must be completed within the time limit.

 

Individual Activities/Assignments

Students will be assigned 3 individual assignments. These include the Qualitative Article Critique, Quantitative Article Critique and the NIH Ethics Certificate completion.

 

Interdisciplinary Group Activities/Assignments

Students will be assigned an interdisciplinary group by the course instructor. Working collaboratively, each group must complete the Group Activities as instructed in the modules.

 

Students are required to submit all assignments in the appropriate assignment drop box in Desire2Learn.  Do not wait until the last minute to submit in case you have technical difficulties.  If you have difficulties submitting any assignments, contact your instructor immediately so that problems can be resolved by the

deadline.  Technical difficulties need to be addressed through the Desire2Learn help link.  Assignments must be submitted on time.  Due to the nature of the course, late submissions will not be accepted.

 

 

Final Group Project

Because there is not a final exam in this course, each group will produce a final project related to their assigned topic.  Projects will adhere to the guidelines below and be submitted as a single PowerPoint® presentation into the proper dropbox in D2L.  Students will have until May 1, 2014 to upload the projects.  Final group projects will not be accepted after May 1, 2014, 11:59 p.m. CST. 

This project will consist of several elements that will have been completed as group assignments throughout the semester as well as new information from the group.  Each group member will be responsible for answering the questions below and submitting their information to their leader via the discussion board.  The group leader will synthesize each element to come up with a group consensus and place the consensus on the discussion board for each member to review, discuss, and refine.  Before the due date, the group leader will place all individual parts into a PowerPoint® and then he/she will place the group consensus at the end of the presentation.  It is the responsibility of each group member to read, proof, critique, evaluate, and suggest necessary changes prior to the final project submission.

 

Research Proposal Project

Scenario: Your hospital, clinic, or educational institution, etc.  is interested in the topic your group has been working on.  Management is so excited about what you are doing that it wants you to create a research project and run with it!  Consider the following:

 

  1. List 5 benefits of conducting an interdisciplinary project and 5 challenges of conducting an interdisciplinary project.  2 Slides on Final Project

 

  1. What would you have to do in order to get permission to conduct your research project and publish it? Are there people at the hospital, clinic, or educational institution, etc., who must sign off on the project before you publish?  Are there internal review boards or other mechanisms for approval? 2 Slides on Final Project

 

  1. Who are the key players other than your original group that needs to be involved in this project to get it off the ground? Why are they important? 1 Slide on Final Project

 

  1. What type of research methods (lit review, quantitative, qualitative, evidence-based, mixed methods, etc. do you think would be a best fit for your project?  Why? 1 Slide on Final Project

 

 

  1. Consider how you would get the final results out – for what peer-reviewed publication would your topic be a best fit? Remember, this is an interdisciplinary project, so think outside your discipline as well. Provide the actual names of the Peer Reviewed Journals as well as links to the journals that would be a best fit for your project. 1 Slide on Final Project

 

 

  1. Talk about the possible impact on each discipline involved. How would it change the dynamics around the institution?  Would it affect how the differing disciplines view each other and/or change the way the institution views those who participate?  How could it affect the attitudes of co-workers or ancillary people in the institution? 2 Slides on Final Project

 

  1. As a group, discuss any changes that need to be made to your Group Assignment # 4 (Mini-Lit Review). Implement this information into your presentation.  Make sure you follow proper formatting, including in-text citations. Be sure to look at the resources on APA, sample paper, and How to Write a Literature Review. 6-8 Slides on Final Project

 

 

  1. As a group, write a summary of your experience in this interdisciplinary course.  What was frustrating and how did you overcome the frustration(s).  What was good about the experience?  Give specific examples.  What is your group consensus about the value of research in general and this course specifically? 2 Slides on Final Project

 

  1. Utilize the Reference Page the group created in Group Assignment #3.  Incorporate all references from each individual making sure you utilize proper APA formatting. 2-4 Slides on Final Project

Academic Conduct

RESP 4423 adheres to the MSU Code of Conduct.  In particular, academic dishonesty, however small, creates a breach in academic integrity.  A student’s participation in this course comes with the expectation that his or her work will be completed in full observance of the MSU Code of Student Conduct.  A student should consult the current Student Handbook for answers to any questions about the code.

 

 

 

 

Many components of RESP 4423 are designed to be highly interactive with students helping each other learn. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of many resources available including online Desire2Learn course resources, Internet sites, other textbooks and journals, faculty, and peers when answering objectives. This interactive collegial learning environment is conducive for life-long learning.

 

All components of RESP 4423 are designed to represent the efforts of each student INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared or copied (plagiarized) from other sources.    When students submit their efforts for grading, they are ating they abided by this rule.

 

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, s, or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems, or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of s or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.

 

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct citation in the text and on the reference list, the published or unpublished works of another person. Students may NOT submit papers and assignments that they have previously submitted for this or other courses. The use of

materials generated by agencies engaged in "selling" term papers is also plagiarism. Students are encouraged to review the tutorials and suggested websites for more information about plagiarism. Papers and other assignments may be submitted to an external agency for verification of originality and authenticity.

 

Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. Whenever a student is unsure of whether a particular situation will be interpreted as academic dishonesty, he/she should ask the instructor for clarification.  If students are guilty of academic dishonesty, a grade of zero (0) will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc.  Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.

Recommended Text:

Kacmarek, RM, Wilkens RL, Stoller JK. Egan’s Fundamentals of Respiratory Care, Tenth Edition, Mosby 2013.

Course Description:

The focus of this lecture course is to review the etiology, pathology, pathophysiology, clinical features, and treatments for common pulmonary diseases.  Disease topics include asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, shock, pulmonary embolism, heart failure, smoke inhalation and burns, ARDS, chest trauma, atelectasis, neuromuscular disease, and pneumonia.

Objectives:

                Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify etiology, pathology, pathophysiology and clinical features associated with common respiratory disease processes.
  • Demonstrate ability to apply appropriate therapeutic interventions for each identified pathophysiological process.

 

Attendance Policy:

Regular class attendance is required. No distinction is made between excused and unexcused absences unless the absence has been cleared through the office of the Dean of Students, Athletic Department, or Academic Affairs. If a student misses lecture, it is the student’s responsibility to work with other class members to determine what material was missed. Please refer to the MSU Student Handbook for more information.

American with Disabilities Act (ADA):

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Please see the instructor outside of class to make any arrangements involving special accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to declare any disabilities. After declaration, preferably at the beginning of each semester, the student needs to contact individual instructors to determine any reasonable accommodations that may be required.

Student Honor Creed:                                                                              

"As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all studentwork is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

Audience:

 

Distance Respiratory Care Students

Attendance Policy:

Regular class attendance is expected, and is used for grading purposes. Attendance may be evaluated on the basis of the student’s frequency of log-in’s or participation in course postings. There is a direct correlation between grades and class participation. Students who check the site regularly and participate typically do better in the course. Although the syllabus includes an approximate calendar, changes can occur during the year. If changes are made it is the student’s responsibility to check the site for any changes posted by the instructor. It is also the student’s responsibility to keep up with material as it is posted on the site.

American with Disabilities Act (ADA):

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Please see the instructor outside of class to make any arrangements involving special accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to declare any disabilities. After declaration, preferably at the beginning of each semester, the student needs to contact individual instructors to determine any reasonable accommodations that may be required.

Student Honor Creed:                                                                              

"As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all studentwork is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

HOT TOPIC ASSIGNMENTS

Each week a hot topic assignment will be posted asking the student to research a specific subject currently on the forefront of respiratory care. Each student is required to locate one peer-reviewed journal article published within the past five years pertaining to the question posed and post either that article or a link to that article on the discussion board. The student should provide a brief summary (300 words), of the posted article. The student is encouraged to include personal opinions and insight as appropriate to the subject matter. This summary should be well written and should utilize proper grammar. The summary should be posted on the discussion board along with the referenced article.

            DISCUSSION

 

Each student is expected to review and comment on a minimum of two hot topic assignments. The student is expected to have reviewed the posted article and the summary. Feedback should be well thought out and constructive in nature. Feedback should be posted under the Dialogue and Discussion Link associated with the Weekly Hot Topic.

 

SUGGESTIONS FOR FEEDBACK:

  • Did the student clearly demonstrate all learning objectives?
  • Did the student hold the learners interests?
  • Was this paper adequate for the criteria outlined in the course?
  • Did the student close the paper effectively by summarizing the major points?
  • What did you learn from reading this article and summary?

 

DIALECTICAL JOURNALS

 

Each student will be asked to review and provide feedback to three articles posted as part of their hot topic assignment in the format of a dialectical journal. A dialectical journal is a double-entry note taking system that helps one to read critically and encourages the habit of reflective questioning. Students may choose any three articles, not necessarily their own. The student should have a minimum of 15 entries with comments for each. Dialectical journals are due Week 5 (2/16), Week 9 (3/16), and Week 14 (4/20). These journals should be submitted under the Dropbox Icon.

 

POWERPOINT PROJECT

 

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of modalities utilized for the management of the critically ill respiratory patient. You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific adult critical care therapeutic technique that you are interested in. Power points should be around 20-25 slides. Examples of advance practice techniques include advanced ventilator modes, Nitric Oxide, jet ventilation, optimal PEEP, or other innovative strategies incorporated in the critical care setting. This may be a strategy recently adopted by your facility or a modality you consider cutting edge in the world of respiratory care. The project should include indications, contraindications, hazards, and desired outcomes. You must cite your references at the end of your project. The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 5 years). Use scholarly sources; cite according to APA style. Please refer to the following description and specifics:

Missed Homework/Exam Policy:

Late or missed work is not accepted.

Honor System: 

All components of RESP 3543 are designed to represent the efforts of each student INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared, copied or plagiarized from other sources. When students submit their efforts for grading, they are ating that abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, s or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of s or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.

 

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct citation in the text and on the reference list, the published and unpublished works of another person. Students may NOT submit papers and assignments that they have previously submitted for this or other courses. The use of materials generated by agencies engaged in “selling” term papers is also plagiarism.

 

Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. Whenever a student is unsure of whether a particular situation will be interpreted as academic dishonesty, he/she should ask the instructor for clarification. If students are guilty of academic dishonesty, a grade of “0” will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc. Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.

I will do my best to get back to you the same day; however, I have a full teaching schedule, it might be a couple of days before I get to your email.

 

OFFICE HOURS:           By Appointment

                  

GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This is an internet-based course that provides an introduction to management of health care services.  Emphasis is placed on development of skills in leadership, communication, time management, problem solving, motivation, and other critical competencies.  Topics include methods to achieve greater productivity, policy improvement, recruitment, selection, and training of new employees, as well as current issues facing the health care system.

The course work consists of readings in the texts and online sources, writing assignments responding to these readings, self-generated case study and six exams. 

 

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

There will be six exams in this class.  These will be open book, as you may use any of your assigned resources, notes from discussions online, posted content from the professor.  You may NOT consult your classmates.  These exams may consist of multiple choice, short answer, definitions, listing, true false, and/or essay.   

 

There will be one self-generated case study with two phases (Refer to Writing Rubric for guidelines attached to this assignment in D2L):

Phase 1:           In at least 500 words, identify a management problem you have encountered in your work place and suggest a possible solution for the problem.  This is due October 4, 2013.

Phase 2:           Read at least three academic journal articles, which discuss this problem and then rewrite the case study incorporating the information you have discovered.  This addendum should also be at least 500 words.  Include a reference list with your case study. This is due November 15, 2013.

 

CLASS PARTICIPATION:  Class participation is an integral part of this online course.  There are numerous activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, research, or in response to the discussion by others. 

FEEDBACK ON ASSIGNMENTS AND EXAMS: For each assignment, I have given an expected completion date for grading. 

LATE ASSIGNMENTS:  D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed.  Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MSU authorities for disciplinary action.

In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

Research papers and projects must be original work for each course assignment.  The faculty will not accept a submission that has been or is being submitted for another course.  No Exceptions!

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

COURSE TITLE

Advanced Practice Applications

COURSE NUMBER

RESP 4243

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Designed for advanced students to work in appropriate areas not otherwise available to respiratory care.  May be taken twice when topics vary.

WEEKLY MEETING PATTERN

There are no formal meeting times for this class.

COURSE STRUCTURE

Students are awarded points for obtaining skills that help advance the practice of respiratory care.  Points are awarded for specific classes. More points are awarded when the student completes a NEW area of practice.  NEW refers to obtaining education/training that the student had not previously been trained in.  Fewer points are awarded for re-certifying in an area of study.  Certificates of Completion are used to document course completion.  The certificates must be obtained, and therefore dated, AFTER the student enrolled in RESP 4243 at MSU.  No certificates can be used when dated BEFORE the student started taking this class.  The student should achieve a point total of 3 (see table below) and write a Reflective Report.  Once documentation is submitted, the instructor can complete grading for this class. This course can be taken twice for credit, however excess points obtained in the first class CANNOT be carried over to the second and topics must vary.

AUDIENCE

RRT-to-BSRC students

AMERICAN WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)

Midwestern State University (MSU) does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s disability and complies with Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act in its admission, accessibility and employment of individuals in programs and activities.  MSU provide academic accommodations and auxiliary aids to individuals with disabilities, as defined by law, who are otherwise qualified to meet academic and employment requirements. For assistance call (940) 397-4618 or (940) 397-4515.

Please contact the instructor to make any arrangements involving special accommodations.  It is the student’s responsibility to declare any disabilities. After declaration, preferably at the beginning of each semester, the student needs to contact individual instructors to determine any reasonable accommodations that may be required.

GRADED ITEMS AND GRADE DETERMINATION

80% Pioints obtainted (3 points required)

20% Reflective Report

100%

Certificates of Completion (80%)

Each time the student completes a program of study a notarized copy of the certificate of completion must be obtained.  These certificates are used to document the students’ attendance in the class. 

Reflective Report (20%)

A word-processed report must be written that explains why the particular certificates that were obtained are important to advancing the practice of respiratory care.  The report is to be narrative rather than a list of topics covered.  The report needs to have at least three pages of written material, 1-inch margins, double-spaced and no more than an 12-point font.  The grade is made on how well the student makes the argument that the material studied advances the practice of respiratory care.  The style of this paper is to be energetic and precise: the sentence structure is varied and the words are carefully chosen. How the writer says things is as excellent as what the writer says. There is evidence of careful editing since the essay contains few grammatical and/or mechanical errors. A writing rubric is attached to this assignment in D2L so you will be able to see what I'm looking for in your assignment.

APPROXIMATE GRADING SCALE

80-89%    B

75-79%    C

The focus of this lecture course is on application of basic principles of physics to the respiratory and cardiovascular systems.  Emphasis is placed on the physics of fluids and gases.  Topics include force, work, pressure, Bernoulli’s theorem, Venturi tubes, flow patterns, viscosity, gas laws, diffusion, surface tension, gas solubility, and the equation of motion applied to the respiratory system. 

 

OBJECTIVES

  • Describe how substances undergo change of state.
  • Describe how water vapor capacity, absolute humidity and relative humidity are related.
  • Describe how to predict gas behavior under changing conditions.
  • Describe the principles that govern the flow of fluids.
  • Describe the difference between monitoring and analysis of gas exchange.
  • Apply concepts associated with monitoring and analysis to gas analysis in the clinical setting.
  • List the major categories of pulmonary function ing.
  • State the primary purpose of pulmonary function ing.
  • Describe the pathophysiologic patterns associated with obstructive and restrictive lung disease.
  • Describe the physiologic functions provided by ventilation.

GRADED ITEMS AND GRADE DETERMINATION

 

Lecture Examinations                                          65%

Dialectical Journal/Supplemental Assignments       10%

Gas Laws Presentations                                      10%

            Final Examination                                               15%

 

Dialectical Journal:  Journal articles will be assigned throughout the semester that the student will be asked to review and provide feedback in the format of a dialectical journal.  A dialectical journal is a double-entry note taking system that helps one to read critically and encourages the habit of reflective questioning.

 

Supplemental Assignments:  Quizzes, homework assignments and projects will be assigned throughout the semester as needed to reinforce concepts introduced in the classroom.

 

Semester Examinations and the Final Examination: In-class s that will consist of definitions, multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, or essay type questions.

 

         

MISSED HOMEWORK/EXAM POLICY

Each student should make every effort to ensure that all assignments are submitted in a timely fashion.  A 10% reduction will be taken for each day after the scheduled due date for the assignment.  If a student is going to miss an examination, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the exam to arrange with the instructor to make up the missed exam.  A 15% reduction will be taken for each day (weekends and holidays included) after the scheduled exam date.  The professor reserves the right to make unscheduled exams essay in nature and considerably more challenging.

Student Honor Creed

"As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, we, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
