Academic Integrity Week

CHOOSE: INTEGRITY Academic Integrity Week. October 5 - 9, 2015

October 5-9, 2015

Academic Integrity is about all choices.

Even in the face of time constraints, ignorance and misunderstanding, or temptation to take the easy way out, choose to act with integrity. Through this, you make a positive impact on your personal and professional reputation, and add to the value of your education.

Your institution expects this of you. You are responsible to rise to the occasion. Be truthful in what you submit. Be deliberate in your academic writing and cite and reference all source material.

  • Choose to be honest and fair.
  • Choose to be respectful and choose to be courageous.
  • Choose to be authentic.
  • Choose integrity.
