Academic Integrity Statement: Missouri Southern State University is committed to academic integrity and expects all members of the university community to accept shared responsibility for maintaining academic integrity. Students are subject to the provisions of the university’s Academic Integrity Policy, published in the Student Handbook. Penalties for academic misconduct in any course may include a failing grade on the assignment, a failing grade in the course, or any other course-related sanction the instructor determines to be appropriate. Continued enrollment in a course affirms a student’s acceptance of the university policy.

In  addition, Honors students are expected to abide by the requirements and regulations of the Honors Program, and to help promote an atmosphere of honesty and responsibility in order to foster intellectual and personal growth. Any Honors student who is found responsible for violating the code of Academic Integrity by the Honors Program, or fails to uphold the behavior expected of an Honors student, will be dismissed from the program effective immediately.

Science and Society with Dr. Roettger 

What is science?  Is it lots of big words and facts that don’t make sense?  How is science used?  Who controls what scientists can do?  My favorite quote is from Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park: “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.”  Honors 495: Science and Society will be looking first at defining science and pre-conceived ideas society has about science.  We will then move to examining how science impacts society and how society impacts science using current topics.  For example, there is current debate about the use of genetic information and privacy, or how far gene editing should go and who decides what should or could happen. Scientists and non-scientists need to work together and a first step is for everyone involved to be knowledgeable about the other side because “Knowledge is Power.”
