Academic Integrity Defined
Fanshawe College defines ‘Academic Integrity’ as ‘holding oneself and others accountable for performing academic work both honestly and ethically’.
Developing and demonstrating Academic Integrity is something that Fanshawe faculty and staff expect of each other, it’s something that Fanshawe College expects of its students, and it’s certainly something that employers and recruiters will expect of Fanshawe graduates.
If you’re able to hold yourself and others accountable for performing ‘academic’ work both honestly and ethically, then you’ll be able to hold yourself and others accountable for performing ‘professional’ work both honestly and ethically when you’re out in the workplace in the industry of your choice.
If you can develop and demonstrate Academic Integrity while you’re a student at Fanshawe, you’ll be able to further develop and demonstrate Professional Integrity when you become an employee or an entrepreneur after graduation.
Academic Integrity is important for the following FIVE reasons:
- it ensures fairness in the education that students pursue,
- it ensures fairness in the academic work that students complete,
- it ensures fairness in the grades that students earn,
- it protects the value of your credentials, and
- it protects the reputation of your academic institution.
Please consider the key guiding principles when asked about academic integrity: fairness, value, and reputation.
