Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects



Document Type



This research was designed to survey full-time faculty and staff, from multiple universities, about their experience of fraud within their current and previous institution. Through the survey, we were provided insight into the perception of fraud within higher education institutions and the faculty and staff perception of how the institution handled it. Through the information provided in the survey, it is revealed if whether fraud is a rare occurrence at most institutions or if whether it is a bigger problem than it appears to be. In addition, we will learn how many instances of fraud within different institutions participants have experienced. We will learn if whether the respondents perceive fraud as an issue, which may need addressing by institution administration. This work will also provide insight as to the views of faculty and staff on how cases of proven fraud should be handled, and if the institutions cases of fraud properly.
