HSS Course Policies
Use of Generative AI
HSS Policy on Generative AI
In our teaching, HSS instructors prioritize student learning, and this commitment drives our policies on the use of generative AI in the classroom. Generative AI may promote learning in some contexts and impede it in others.
At present, students submitting work for HSS courses may use generative AI tools only in ways that are explicitly allowed by the course instructor in the course materials. Any usage that is not specifically allowed should be assumed to be disallowed. This policy applies to all assignments, including major papers and exams as well as smaller assignments like discussion board posts, reflections, and problem sets. Students will also be expected to follow specific course guidance for documenting any permitted use of these tools.
If you have questions about whether a particular use of a generative AI tool is expected, allowed, or disallowed for an assignment, contact your professor before you submit work.
