3. Explain how at least three of OSU’s Shared Student Values (excluding integrity) relate to issues of academic integrity.

5. What would your response be if Professor Taylor asked you the following question:  "If we don't have integrity in the small things, if we find it possible to justify plagiarism or cheating... in things that don't seem important, how will we resist doing the same in areas that really matter?"  Do you think that his concern is legitimate or not?  Explain.
