I am an administrator of a university in U.K. A student has been found guilty of plagiarism and is facing the harshest punishment – 0 in the course and no opportunity to retake which will get him out of the school.
However, he is also an academic at another university. Do we need to inform the department head at his university even though it is a completely separate entity from ours? The course is different from what the student teaches at the other university.
I am concerned about the data breach and confidentiality issues. As academics do we have duty to report this?
