Academic integrity is fundamental to all scholarly activity. As members of the University community, we all have a responsibility to learn and share knowledge with integrity.

Academic Integrity is "a commitment to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage." – International Center for Academic Integrity

This section provides students, professors and others with information and tools to work with integrity, discuss integrity, identify and avoid the pitfalls of academic misconduct, as well as to understand the consequences of misconduct. 

Each of us has a role to play. For example, students should know course and academic unit expectations regarding academic integrity and ask questions as necessary. Professors must convey expectations in their courses.

See our resources, policies and academic community support to help you foster a culture of academic integrity at uOttawa and throughout your career.
