2013 Southeastern Regional Academic Integrity Conference

On April 19th and 20th, 2013, the Mann Center hosted the inaugural Southeastern Regional Academic Integrity Conference at Samford. During the conference, which included representatives from 26 institutions in 7 states, attendees shared insights about challenges and best practices at their own institutions. The ICAI Southeast Consortium was also launched at the conference; this consortium, which will be led by the Mann Center, will serve as a resource for Southeastern colleges and universities and will convene conversations around this important topic.

Mann Center program manager Azalea Hulbert facilitated a session titled "Better World Theatre: Teaching Ethics through the Arts." Samford students Kristin Aebli, Cat Forman, Claire Gaxiola, and Christina Witt participated in the session as actors and discussion leaders (view presentation). Other presenters included Teddi Fishman, the International Center for Academic Integrity (view presentation); James Orr and Jeremy Hall, Mississippi State University; Kevin Kozee, the University of South Carolina; Iva Bimi Ballard, Mississippi State University; Michael Goodwin, Kennesaw State University (view presentation); and Gary Pavela, past president of ICAI and the keynote speaker.
