I’m a regular reader of The Cascade.
Although I always encourage students with concerns to bring them directly to my attention, The Cascade is another good way for students to engage publicly and constructively on topics important to our University.
When I read Nadine Moedt’s opinion piece about recent changes in policy on plagiarism and appeal, I brought it to my executive committee for discussion. I thought it important to investigate whether we had unintentionally impeded the kind of direct communication and problem-solving that has been a strength of UFV’s student/faculty interactions.
Our Vice-President Students, Jody Gordon, will follow up on our behalf.
I thank Nadine for writing about her concern.
