Forsaking Honor or for the Sake of Honor: A Case Study of Lee-Allen University
Jaeger, Audrey J.; Thornton, Courtney H.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v10 n3-4 p32-41 2007
A basketball player at a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I and religiously affiliated school cheats in a course and receives an "F." Under the school's academic policy, a failing grade for academic dishonesty should not be expunged from the student's record, but the university's president approves a grade change for the star athlete. This case examines the actions of a university president, Board of Trustees, faculty members, and other administrators in this controversial situation. The case was developed for an organization theory course in a higher education administration program but is also instructive on leadership and governance, accountability, and academic integrity.
