Dr. Allyson Wattley Gee, College of Management and Technology: For those of us in the communication discipline, whether for those who may be earning a master's degree because they want to teach, maybe you work in public relations, you work in social media in terms of marketing, or whatever it is that you're doing, you have to follow guidelines. And, in order for you to express your ideas in an appropriate way, learning very early that academic standards are also professional standards and we're not asking you to do anything here in your work at Walden that really would not be required of you as a professional. For academic purposes, like I said, it’s professional standards so that when you get out there in the workplace, an employer will be very impressed with what you do because you did all these fantastic things while a student here at Walden, so you should do those things as well while you're at work.
