Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is the commitment to upholding the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage in all scholarly activities (International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), 2013).

Academic integrity is often misconceived as a student responsibility. At the University of Manitoba, however, we believe strongly that academic integrity is everyone’s responsibility.

Students are more likely to embrace academic integrity when they believe their instructors are honest, fair, respectful, trustworthy, and responsible – the very same qualities that we expect of our students (Christensen Hughes & McCabe, 2006; Lang, 2013). To promote a culture of academic integrity, instructors must model academic integrity in their teaching practices.

We offer academic integrity supports to instructors in the form of workshops, teaching tips, and learning resources.
