Dean Bertolami expressed his appreciation to the 13 students who constitute NYUCD's newly established Student Peer Review Board by hosting a luncheon in their honor in December.

The Student Peer Review Board relies exclusively on student leadership to promote academic integrity, champion ethical behavior, and adjudicate allegations of academic dishonesty. The program is in the middle of a one-year pilot phase, whose outcome will determine whether or not it will continue on a permanent basis.

"The results we've seen to date have been very impressive," said Dean Bertolami. "The student peer reviewers take their responsibilities very seriously and have acted in what I consider to be an extremely thoughtful, professional manner. I am confident of the soundness of the program's premise; namely, that when students are empowered to set and enforce academic integrity standards, they tend to do so. I believe that the program has great potential on an ongoing basis."
