Academic Integrity Basics
Integrity is acting with honesty, fairness, and respect, and making responsible choices at all times, even (and especially!) when times are tough.
“Academic integrity” is the term used to describes the values that are essential* to the pursuit of scholarship and participation in an educational community: honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility.
To act with academic integrity is to obtain your university degree through fair and honest means, by adhering to sound ethical principles, and following the rules laid out in the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters.
The University expects students to know these rules and not to engage in behaviour, intentional or otherwise, that results in unearned or unfair advantage over other students.
Helping to ensure that the University maintains a reputation for excellence and the highest level of integrity in all areas is the responsibility of everyone in the community—including you!
