Academic Integrity Policy: Plagiarism is a serious academic offense and I have a zero tolerance policy. The result will be a failure on the assignment and potentially the course, and may warrant college disciplinary action. See CUNY’s policy on academic integrity: http://web.cuny.edu/academics/info-central/policies/academic-integrity.pdf. Writing at Queens also offers useful advice on how to avoid plagiarism: http://writingatqueens.org/for-students/what-is-plagiarism/. If you have any questions while you are writing, please come see me.
Writing Center: Located in Kiely Hall 229, the Writing Center is staffed by tutors who are trained to help you revise your writing at various stages. If you believe you need additional help with your writing, or if I ask you to set up a regular meeting with a tutor, you should make an appointment at least one month prior to an assignment due date. They are available for appointments or drop-in visits; call (718) 997-5676 or visit http://writingatqueens.qc.cuny.edu/the-writing-center/student-information/.
