What is Academic Integrity?

The International Center for Academic Integrity defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage. In 2013, a task force revised the original version to include an updated sixth value: courage. (ICAI, Fundamental Values Project, 1999).

Why does Academic Integrity Matter?

When each member of the Seneca Community embraces and incorporates these values into our teaching, learning and working environments, then we are able to maintain the polytechnic’s reputation as a leading educational institution and to graduate high quality students who are poised to succeed in their careers and contribute meaningfully to society.

Upcoming Events

Join us for the International Day of Action for Academic Integrity! This year's theme is "Championing academic integrity in the age of AI." This theme connects the need for staff and students to champion academic integrity in their institutions and beyond, and the current situation with AI (Artificial Intelligence) which is having a profound effect on Higher Education.
