Donald L. McCabe is a Professor of Management and Global Business at Rutgers University. Over the last twenty-two years he has done extensive research on college cheating, surveying over 250,000 students (at more than 210 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. He has also surveyed over 40,000 high school students in the United States during the last ten years. His work has been published widely in business, education and sociology journals and he is founding president of the Center for Academic Integrity, a consortium of over 300 colleges and universities based at Clemson University who are joined in a united effort to promote academic integrity among college and university students. In conjunction with his traditional coauthors – Linda Trevino and Ken Butterfield – he published a summary of the first 20 years of his work in Cheating in College – Why Students Do It and What Educators Can Do About It. He will provide a brief overview of this work and then focus on ways in which he feels Carnegie Mellon might benefit from some of his findings.
