WSU Plagiarism Information Site

Plagiarism has become a central academic integrity issue facing educational institutions everywhere. In early 2002, a group of interested people gathered to discuss the creation of a plagiarism information site for Washington State University. The group included WSU employees from a wide range of campus organizations including: the Writing Center, the English Department, the Center for Teaching Learning and Technology, the Office of Student Affairs, the WSU Libraries, and the University Ethics Interest Group.

The group sought to equip WSU affiliates with an effective tool, providing a comprehensive overview of the topic, offering a degree of clarity to an issue frought with confusion, and educating about WSU policies and procedures. This site features written work from representatives across the campus and is designed to meet the informational needs of both students and instructors.
