Punishment for Plagiarists: Real World Case

In one Adjunct professor’s experience, plagiarism is largely tolerated at major U.S. colleges and universities, and he found it to be extremely frustrating.

There was one particular case where a U.S. Military officer submitted a computer program that matched the work of another, line for line.  Upon investigation, the professor discovered that he had lifted someone else’s work from a trash bin and copied it, adding only his name, as the author.

This professor was especially offended because this officer was a graduate of a U.S. Military academy, and was completely familiar with the Honor Code and the ethics of an officer.  Upon confrontation, he was completely unremorseful and gave the lame excuse, “everyone does it.” 

In this case, the professor attempted to flunk the student and file a complaint against him with the university.  The professor was fully aware that the Armed Forces would not be favorable to the officer, that he would lose his security clearance and could be summarily dismissed from the armed forces, perhaps losing his retirement and most of all, his personal honor.
