미국 대학 학부학생 학습 및 행동 윤리 규정 사례연구
One of the important goals of the undergraduate education is to encourage students to develop the capacity for critical judgment and to make responsible decisions. As members of the university community students are expected to learn and practice the ethical values and honor code developed by the institutions. In this paper I discuss the contents of “ethical reasoning” area courses, one of the eight required subject areas of general education curriculum at Harvard. I review the undergraduate student honor code and I explain the administrative policies, procedures, and sanctions involved in the cases of violation of the code at Harvard and University of South Carolina. I offer a set of suggestions for establishing academic and campus life code of conduct for institutions of higher education in Korea.
Key Words: Honor code, ethical reasoning, general education, plagiarism, sanctions, administrative policies and procedures, implications for Korean universities
