University of Calgary Ombuds to Discuss Academic Integrity in a Pandemic

At a free webinar next week, UCalgary Student Ombuds Jeff Stransky will speak on "The Role of an Ombuds in Academic Integrity." The session is intended to explain the role of the Ombuds with a focus on how the Ombuds supports students through the academic misconduct process.

Here's a summary of the webinar:
In higher education, a Student Ombuds is commonly available to students who find themselves at odds with their institution and in need of confidential support. In the two years since college and university classes moved online, Ombuds offices have experienced a significant increase in the number of inquiries from students seeking assistance to respond to allegations of academic misconduct. Ombudspeople endeavour to maintain neutrality, delicately balancing their institution’s essential need to uphold academic integrity with students’ right to be treated fairly.
Register by April 6 for the event on April 8, 2022. (UCalgary Events.)
