Integrity Posters
Students display their posters for Academic Integrity

Business Communication majors in the Introduction to Corporate Design class were tasked with creating a poster for the University’s new Office of Academic Integrity. Goals of the project were to make academic integrity engaging and meaningful to students using edgy, creative thinking. Students were encouraged to tie their message into Stevenson University’s culture.

Organized as a student competition with an exhibition-voting system, this collaborative project aimed to engage the Stevenson Community in the conversation about academic integrity.

This campaign includes collaboration between several design classes taught by Visiting Assistant Professor Inna Alesina, Academic Integrity Officer Ms. Theresa W. Gillis, and photography students led by Professor Elena Volkova.
