After It Happens

Reluctance of faculty to formally report violations: The University of Alberta lists these reasons: perception of the university process as time-consuming & tedious; often the punishments do not fit the crime; reluctance to damage the student's reputation or career; difficulty in proving the accusation; lodging a complaint against a student might reflect badly on the teacher's own teaching skills; it can be a traumatic, emotionally draining experience.
