Activities abound for Academic Integrity Week

Academic integrity plays a major role in defining who we are as a university. As students and scholars, our work rests on the foundational belief that we can trust the work others have done. We also trust the other students and faculty members we work with on a daily basis.

Because we work together with integrity, we are able to advance knowledge here at the university and beyond.

Academic Integrity Week runs Sept. 10-14 and aims to foster honesty both inside the classroom and beyond the university’s walls. Everyone, from freshmen to the most senior faculty members and administrators, is invited to participate in the dialogue.
