The result is the definitive resource on academic integrity that students can use every day.
"Georgetown's entering class will discover that we actually have given them what we expect will be a very useful book, Doing Honest Work in College. It will be one of the first things students see on their residence hall desks when they move in, and we hope they will realize how important the topic is."--James J. O'Donnell, Provost, Georgetown University
"A useful book to keep on your reference shelf."--Bonita L. Wilcox, English Leadership Quarterly
