The Academic Honor Code serves to maintain academic honesty and integrity within the University. Regulations at this institution are in effect as soon as the student arrives at UNCP and continue while he/she is on campus. Every student should be familiar with the rules and regulations of this University found in the Student Handbook. Personal honor is the basis of the Academic Honor Code, and it is up to each student to realize and accept this premise if it is to work. Every student who is aware of a violation of the Academic Honor Code should report it to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. See Article IV of the Student Government Association Constitution for further information concerning the Academic Honor Code.
Course Goals and the Objectives of General Education at UNCP
The study of history is an integral part of a liberal arts education. In examining documents, weighing evidence, criticizing interpretations, and communicating ideas, we become better writers, thinkers, and speakers. In becoming connected to the honor and shame, creativity and destruction, hypocrisy and sacrifice, redemption and death of all who came before, we become better human beings. For these reasons, this course takes a biographical approach to history. Individual lives, choices, and reflections, rendered in all their messy context and complications, make more personal, more human, and therefore more apprehendable, a past without victims or villains, a past at once quaint and extraordinary, a past that should leave all its students both troubled and grateful.
Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments is requested to speak directly to Disability Support Services and the instructor, as early in the semester (preferably within the first week) as possible. All discussions will remain confidential. Please contact Mary Helen Walker, Disability Support Services, DF Lowry building, 521-6695.
Effective writing is encouraged and expected by the faculty of the General College and the College of Arts and Sciences. Instructors should help students realize the integral relationship between thinking clearly and writing clearly. The policy of the General College and the College of Arts and Sciences is that faculty in all disciplines and professions should require their students to write well. Students should expect to be graded on spelling, punctuation, grammar, and style, as well as on the content and organization of their written work.
