AI, Policy, and Academic Integrity

AI, Policy, and Academic Integrity Online

This panel will explore the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI), institutional policy, and academic integrity. Join us as three MSU educators share their take on the potential benefits and challenges associated with the use of AI in academic institutions, and how institutional policies can be developed to ensure that AI is used ethically and in a manner that upholds academic integrity. The panelists will draw on their experiences and expertise in their discpiplines to provide insights into this complex and rapidly evolving topic.


Shannon Burton, PhD (she/her)
MSU Ombudsperson

In her role as University Ombudsperson, she seeks to make the office a touchpoint for building trust within the organization by creating a space where individuals can freely discuss their concerns in an environment that adheres to the International Ombudsman Association (IOA) Standards of Practice: confidentiality, informality, neutrality and independence. At the center of this, she aspires to:

  • Treat individuals as conscious beings able to actively participate in creating solutions through reflection;
  • Increase capacity for conflict resolution and engage processes that build democracy; and
  • Develop critical thinking skills and create lifelong learners.
