Responsibilities of the Instructor

The Curtis Institute of Music will publish this policy on the website in order to make it available to every student and faculty member. Instructors are obliged to include a statement concerning the Academic Honesty Policy in their syllabi, and they are encouraged to discuss the policy with their students.

If an instructor suspects that a student has violated the policy, the instructor will request an explanation from the student. If the instructor determines that no violation has occurred, the matter will be dropped. If the instructor determines that a violation has occurred and it is a first offense for the student, the instructor may resolve the matter by following the procedures for an informal or a formal resolution. Any additional violations will require formal resolutions.
