Speech center hosts plagiarism workshop

Plagiarism is a nasty no-no in the academic world, but discerning plagiarized works is becoming increasingly difficult in the digital age.  

That's why a host of students gathered in the Milo Bail Student Center Dodge Room Oct. 26 to learn the ins and outs of plagiarism during a Lunch and Learn session organized by the UNO Speech Center.

Students who attended were given first-hand lessons on how to evaluate research documents, cite sources within presentations and how to avoid making research mistakes.

Plagiarism is  "particularly reprehensible in a community dedicated to the pursuit and advancement of knowledge," according the UNO website's Student Rights and Responsibilities page.

Students suspected of plagiarism are subject to disciplinary action, and many professors give failing course grades to plagiarizers.
