What is Academic Integrity? Why Is It Important?
The International Center for Academic Integrity defines academic integrity as "..a commitment to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage. By embracing these fundamental values, instructors, students, staff, and administrators create effective scholarly communities where integrity is a touchstone. Without them, the work of teachers, learners, and researchers loses value and credibility. More than merely abstract principles, the fundamental values serve to inform and improve ethical decision-making capacities and behaviour. They enable academic communities to translate ideals into action." 1
