The University of Toronto is deeply committed to the free and open exchange of ideas, and to the values of independent inquiry. As such, academic integrity is also fundamental to the University’s intellectual life. Faculty are responsible for promoting a culture of academic integrity through prevention, awareness and reporting.
Learn more about rules and processes about cheating, plagiarism and other academic integrity issues, and get advice on how to design courses, assignments and tests on the U of T Academic Integrity website. Additionally, Arts & Science has created the following forms and templates to assist you with the academic integrity process:

The Academic Handbook for Instructors is intended to provide essential information about rules, regulations and mandatory expectations for undergraduate teaching in the Faculty of Arts & Science. It is also meant to offer helpful suggestions and guidance on best practices.
The University of Toronto requires that all courses, both undergraduate and graduate, be evaluated by students. The normal practice in Arts & Science is to use the University of Toronto’s centralized course evaluation framework and online delivery system. For more information, as well as important dates, visit our course evaluation page.
The Arts & Science Undergraduate Calendar contains rules and regulations as they are presented to students, in addition to the usual descriptions of courses and programs.
Instructors have a number of professional resources available to help them be effective teachers, most notably the suite of resources provided by the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (CTSI).
