Educational Philosophy: I have always considered excellence in teaching as the most important goal of a faculty member. The "excellent teacher" prepares courses that involve students in their own learning and gives them the means to be life-long learners. This is especially important in a field that is changing as rapidly as management of information systems. I believe that one learns by doing. Therefore, I always provide practical experiences in my courses. However, students have various learning styles and thus, it is important to use as many means as necessary to help them learn--especially material that is sequential knowledge and skills that form the foundation for the rest of their academic program. I set high, though not unreasonable, standards for my students. I make myself available to help all students with the will to learn to reach those standards. The high standards encourage them to seek the knowledge, the skills, and the self-discipline needed for success in their careers. They also enter their career fields with the confidence that comes from knowing their abilities to achieve in those fields.

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism involves the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.

Professors are required to maintain attendance records and report absences. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor, for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands, including temporary duty. Students are responsible for any missed work. Absences in excess of four (4) class periods, in a 16-week semester (or 2, in an 8-week term) will be reported to the Director of the individual graduate program, or to the Dean, for appropriate action. Students with such a record of absences, without an approved excuse, may be administratively withdrawn from the class and notified by mail that an "F" will be recorded, unless the student initiates official withdrawal from the class(es).Park University 2007-2008 Graduate Catalog Page 28
