During the first year of Pamela Vallejos at the University of Hofstra, he learned a difficult lesson when a partner in a group project escaped with the approval of his work in a laboratory report like his. "My teammate had to write the introduction, but he asked me to help him. So I wrote what I would have done for the introduction, and he used all this," says Vallejos, a specialization of biochemistry with plans to go to Med School After graduation of 2022. Its conclusion did not work, as well as that degree introduction. "He ended up improving and taking all the credit."

Reporting the actions of it did not help. "I talked to the teacher, and he laughed in my face," she says. Surely the history of documents of Google, which shows only the name of it as an introductory author, would rectify injustice? "The teacher did not end up," says Vallejos.

Instead of focusing on that frustration, Vallejos was involved in supporting the Honor Code of the University, a shared declaration adopted by the faculty members, the Association of Student Government and the President in 2012. This academic year, it is one of the seven graduates who serve the Honors Board, a group of teachers, staff and students supervised by the Provost office that helps promote and implement the code.
