Each year, the Mann Center's Academic Integrity Advocates lead a group of more than 400 freshmen in a discussion on academic integrity. The events are part of the Mann Center's ongoing series of Courageous Conversations.
2012 student facilitators included Lydia Nace (Junior/History), Jane Marie Hutcheson (Senior/Communication Studies), Cassie Black (Senior/Biology), and Demi Eckhoff (Junior/Nutrition and Dietetics). 2013 facilitators included Analeigh Horton (Sophomore/Communication Studies), Cameron Cross (Sophomore/JMC), Christina Witt (Sophomore/Music), and Claire Gaxiola (Sophomore/Undeclared).
On October 6, 2011, faculty members Dr. John Knapp, Dr. Doug Clapp and Ms. Lori Northrup joined current students Tom Oliver and Caroline Noland to discuss the findings of the 2011 Samford Survey on Academic Integrity. Audience members were informally polled on issues such as how to define cheating and how serious the problem was on Samford's campus.
This event was part of the Mann Center's ongoing series of Courageous Conversations, and was co-sponsored by University Ministries and the University Library.
