Exeter Summer had its first Disciplinary Case of the 2017 session last week.
An Upper School student was found to have taken uncredited material from the internet for an English Department assignment on the essay. The material was incorporated wholesale into the student’s work without acknowledgment, the definition of plagiarism.
Students are strongly warned against plagiarism on many occasions in the summer program.
This year for the first time there is no formal Disciplinary Committee but the infraction was handled by the faculty and deans.
The student received three days of probation with restriction on activities and early check in.
