WSU takes steps to promote academic integrity

safe-assign-logoPULLMAN, Wash. – To enhance academic integrity, faculty are encouraged to use SafeAssign, a tool within Blackboard that can prevent plagiarism and help teach students how to attribute sources. SafeAssign replaces Turnitin, which will expire on July 31.

The Department of Academic Outreach and Innovation will host training sessions and webinars on SafeAssign in August and throughout the year.

This is part of implementing recommendations made by the Washington State University Academic Integrity Task Force, commissioned by the Faculty Senate to identify needs and opportunities for improvement.
