Code of Conduct

Academic Code of Conduct

We are pleased that you signed up for AE1600 and we look forward to getting to know you. It is important to note some important responsibilities. Our Academic Code of Conduct applies to all Art Ed 1600 and 1600D students, whether in-person or online. We want you to have all the information you need to succeed this quarter. Please take a few moments to read our expectations for academic conduct. We assume that all students are honest and to discover otherwise would be a serious disappointment.

The written, audio and visual material in this course is for your use, and only your use, during the quarter. That material may not be reproduced (other than that which downloads automatically) or printed without the express permission of your instructor. To do otherwise is a violation of federal copyright law and may result in severe legal penalties.

Art Ed 1600 offers unique opportunities for independent learning. And, while you will explore the materials and assignments on your own, we hope that you'll participate often in discussions. When it comes to assignments or tests we require that you do your own work.

Please be aware that all email communications between student and instructor will be conducted through your OSU email address only. This is for your protection and there are no exceptions to this policy. If you must use another email provider, then we assume that you will forward your OSU email to another account. This usually works smoothly, and instructors do not have to keep more than one email address per student.

Plagiarism of any kind (from another student, from a printed source, from a web site, etc.) is dishonest. All material taken from sources (including content from the 1600D site) must be properly identified. If you are unsure about how to document a source, please ask! If you are tempted to plagiarize, you should know that the penalties are severe and could result in failure in the course or suspension from the university. We have methods of detecting such practices, so be honest and do your own work. If you use material from another source, and do not identify the source, you will automatically be charged with academic misconduct.

Finally, we are available to assist you with your concerns or questions as they arise. If you are unclear about any of our expectations or policies, please do not hesitate to email your instructor. Our goal is to help you get the information you need to make your learning experience this quarter enjoyable and memorable!

Title IX

Title IX makes it clear that violence and harassment based on sex and gender are Civil Rights offenses subject to the same kinds of accountability and the same kinds of support applied to offenses against other protected categories (e.g., race). If you or someone you know has been sexually harassed or assaulted, you may find the appropriate resources at or by contacting the Ohio State Title IX Coordinator, Kellie Brennan, at


Some of the topics covered in class and in our textbook can be controversial and may deal with images or words that some individuals find offensive and such material is covered in lectures and the course materials. Because such images and language are part of contemporary culture and part of your everyday lives in some way, please remember that we ask you to consider and reconsider these ideas; but we will never require you to like them.

Religious Accommodations

Our inclusive environment allows for religious expression. Students requesting accommodations based on faith, religious or a spiritual belief system in regard to examinations, other academic requirements or absences, are required to provide the instructor with written notice of specific dates for which the student requests alternative accommodations at the earliest possible date.

The Ohio State University affirms the importance and value of diversity in the student body. Our programs and curricula reflect our multicultural society and global economy and seek to provide opportunities for students to learn more about persons who are different from them. We are committed to maintaining a community that recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person; fosters sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect among each member of our community; and encourages each individual to strive to reach his or her own potential. Discrimination against any individual based upon protected status, which is defined as age, color, disability, gender identity or expression, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status, is prohibited.
