The Syllabus in an Extra-Moral Sense

Charles Bingham


This essay investigates the relation between instructors, syllabi, and regulations governing academic integrity.  It is argued that academic integrity policies serve a distinct purpose, a purpose other than the moral purpose that is usually stated when such policies are invoked.
