Honest Work is a space where the Colorado State University Academic Integrity Program can reflect about issues, ideas, and challenges affecting the work students complete in higher education. We will also share, from time to time, stories that illustrate the challenges facing institutions confronting this issue.

Honest Work is maintained by Dr. Joseph Brown, Director of Academic Integrity at Colorado State University. Dr. Brown earned his PhD at Louisiana State University in 2009 and taught English at Abraham Baldwin College, where he was tenured in 2015. In 2016, he joined Colorado State to direct the Academic Integrity Program in CSU’s Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT). As a professor, Dr. Brown worked hard to maintain an engaged culture of learning and to promote academic rigor. In 2012, he was named a Governor’s Teaching Fellow within the University System of Georgia and his published work has appeared in Extrapolation and the Journal of Popular Culture. Dr. Brown enjoys building coalitions between the university’s different cultures and working with campus partners and various stakeholder groups to help CSU’s students become scholars, scientist, artists, and leaders of integrity.
