Victoria Malaney Brown
My name is 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. My research focuses on 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.
