Director of Academic Integrity
Pronouns in Use: she, her, hers
My name is Dr. Victoria Malaney-Brown and I'm the Director for Academic Integrity. In my role, I work across Columbia College and Columbia Engineering to help foster a campus culture that is committed to academic integrity. I created the educational campaign, "Wear the Crown with Honor" at Columbia to cultivate a strong academic community that values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage in upholding our Honor code and pledge. I facilitate in-person and online workshops during the New Student Orientation Program and during the academic year to help students understand both their rights and their responsibilities as academic citizens of Columbia. I also work closely with Student Conduct and Community Standards during the Dean’s Discipline process to identify and implement developmental sanctions and outcomes for students found responsible for academic integrity violations. I recently completed my PhD in Higher Education in the department of Educational Policy, Research and Administration from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in February 2020. My research focuses on race, racism, and multiracial college students. I have a Master of Education degree in Higher Education Administration from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English-Spanish and minors in Dance and Latin American Studies from Skidmore College. Dr. Malaney-Brown will be on parental leave during the Fall 2020 semester. For questions about Academic Integrity programming, cases, and case management please email email@example.com for support.
