We offer the following programs and servics Academic Integrity Tutorial, Campus Violence Prevention Program, Enough is Enough and the Behavioral Concerns Team.
Academic Integrity Tutorial at Northeastern
Student Rights and Responsibilities, in collaboration with Ronald Williams Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), developed the following on-line Academic Integrity Tutorial (AIT) at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU). Go to the tutorial here.
The tutorial is an interactive resource that allows for an instructor to review student responses after taking the tutorial. The tutorial is a fun way for students to become familiar with academic honesty, ways to avoid plagiarism and source documentation. To assign the tutorial to an entire course or individual student, e-mail: M-Raskinski@neiu.edu.
Campus Violence Prevention Program
Northeastern maintains a “zero tolerance” policy with respect to campus violence. This means that all acts of violence, or behavior which threatens violence, will be met with a reasoned and appropriate response. Emphasis will be placed on a proactive identification of potentially violence situations and preventive approaches to reduce the likelihood of violent incidents on our campus.
Lead by the Dean of Students Office, the Campus Violence Prevention Committee (CVPC) oversees the development and revisions of this Campus Violence Prevention Plan, guides violence prevention educational efforts across campus, and interacts with key units in the University community to enhance the safety of the campus environment. In order to provide a broad-based perspective, CVPC members include representatives of University Police, the Dean of Students Office, Student Health & Counseling Services, Human Resources, the Student Disability Services, the Women’s Resource Center, the LGBTQA Center, student leaders, and faculty members.
Violence prevention involves both community building and public education efforts. Community building efforts include programming which seeks to enhance greater awareness of issues central to violence prevention, and which endeavors to create an environment which is perceived as safe, fair and supportive of healthy behavioral choices. Examples of such efforts include:
- Campus Violence Prevention Awareness Week
- Enough is Enough National Anti-Violence Week - Stemming Societal Violence on Campuses
- Violence Against Women programming
- Alcohol Abuse prevention programming
- Timely notifications: NEIUport (NEIU’s online portal) and email distribution
- Faculty/Staff education and training
- Classroom management and classroom disruption policy issues
- Training for identification and referral of students in need of help
- Efforts to reduce stigma surrounding mental health and help-seeking behavior
- Northeastern develops, provides and supports public education efforts to inform faculty, students and staff of through timely Clery Act reporting.
Enough is Enough National Anti-Violence Week
During the first full week of April, campuses across the country will speak out, engage in dialogue, and take action to stem the tide of societal violence.
Do you remember the campus shootings at Virginia Tech & Northern Illinois University? This national program started by the National Association of College Personnel Administrators (NASPA) was initiated as a response to the call to action by the past Vice President of Student Affairs at Virginia Tech. The mission is to bring awareness, education and violence prevention concerning the many types of violence that can plague campuses and our surrounding communities. Help exclaim “Enough is Enough”!
