Student dishonesty and faculty responsibility

Ashvin Parameswaran

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    I ask the question, 'Are faculty who allow dishonesty morally responsible for their students' actions?' By 'allow' I mean ignoring dishonest actions or designing courses in ways that facilitate these actions. I answer this question via a discussion of four issues: normative expectations, doing versus allowing, unavoidable action, and consequentialism. I conclude that faculty who allow dishonesty are morally responsible for their students' actions; only the degree of moral responsibility varies from case to case.
