Report Misconduct

How to report misconduct

There are four categories of misconduct: academic, personal, sexual, and organizational.

Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, and violation of course rules.

If you are an instructor at IU and you believe that a student has committed an act of academic misconduct, you should report it to the Office of Student Conduct using the online incident reporting form. Select “Faculty–Academic Integrity” from the dropdown menu in response to the question about your relationship to IU. After submitting the form, you will receive a confirmation email from ethics@indiana.edu.
