Academic Integrity Ambassadors
The Academic Integrity Ambassador program is a student leadership program aimed at promoting academic integrity through student initiatives and outreach. Ambassadors serve in student leadership positions and are recruited through student councils. The AI Ambassadors promote and foster academic integrity by organizing faculty-specific events and initiatives, facilitating presentations, assisting in the creation of educational resources, and serving as a role model and point of contact for students. Profiles on AI Ambassadors to be posted shortly.

If you are interested in the AI Ambassador program, please contact the Academic Integrity Coordinator, Loie Gervais.

Jakob Sanderson

Jakob Sanderson
Arts, Senator, Arts Student Body Council

Program: Faculty of Arts, Political Studies (honours) & Theatre
Leadership position:  Director of Finance, Arts Student Body Council
Why academic integrity is important to me: I, like many in first year, noticed a massive leap in the expectations placed upon me, as well as large and fear inducing proclamations about plagiarism. However, there were few explanations given in a positive light as to how academic integrity could be reached. I want to help show students, especially incoming first years and international students, ways to keep your academic integrity in tact, while developing readership and writing skills and without scaring people away from our programs.
On a typical day, you’ll find me… an eternal cycle between my office, 206 Fletcher argue, and the HUB ;p

Kim Laberinto

Kim Laberinto
Engineering, Vice Stick Academic, UM Engineering Society

Program: Faculty of Engineering, Electrical Engineering
Student leadership role: Vice-Stick Academic, University of Manitoba Engineering Society
Why academic integrity is important to me: Because as a student studying to be a professional engineer, the Academic Integrity values of honesty, trust and responsibility are important to me. These values are the exact same values that are shared by Professional Engineers. Practicing these values now will shape who we will become when we are in our professions in the future.
On a typical day you’ll find me: Doing homework, labs, and assignments!
