Cheating or plagiarism in connection with an academic program is an offense for which a student will be expelled, suspended, or disciplined. Academic dishonesty is a serious offense which diminishes the quality of scholarship and defrauds those who depend upon the integrity of the educational system.” APU Undergraduate Catalog</li></li></ul><li>For next week…<br />We begin our work together in earnest, with introductions, more on course specifics, and lots of conversation!<br />Be sure to visit eCompanion to get more information about the course, to download or look at the syllabus, and to obtain the supplemental readings…<br />
