Abstract Title: Tethering Ethics to Academic Pursuit
Abstract: The academic ethics survey was designed to elicit self-reflection upon students' own education standards, and expectations for their learning.  As iterations were developed to further elaborate upon students' responses each semester, trends in attitudes towards learning, faculty, and other students' 'collaborative habits' began to emerge.  Individually resolved codes of conduct also emerged from these written responses, providing insight into students' deliberation upon aspects of ethical concern as directly related to their engineering, physics, and chemistry fields of study.  This poster will divulge the common trends collected from four consecutive semesters of introductory engineering physics students, totaling approximately 270 students at Penn State Altoona.
