Possible AI Syllabus Statements

We encourage all instructors to include a policy in their course syllabus regarding the use (and misuse) of generative AI (e.g., chatGPT) in their course.

Whether students in your course are forbidden from using chatGPT or expected to explore its limits, a policy helps ensure that your expectations for appropriate interaction with generative AI tools are clear to students. Once you decide on a policy, make sure you articulate it clearly for your students, so that they know what is expected of them.

Below are examples of sample language you may adopt for your own policy. Feel free to modify it or create your own to suit the needs of your course:
