Under shared values of Academic Integrity as outlined by the International Center for Academic Integrity, U of T is committed to ensuring that each student embodies the six principal values of “honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage” in their academic work.

Here are a few examples of what academic integrity looks like in practice:
Always double checking to include accurate citations of sources
Clarifying expectations for assignments and papers with a T.A., an instructor, or a librarian if unclear
Generating own analysis after reading primary and secondary sources
Assigning clear roles in group projects to avoid doing or taking another colleague’s work
Reporting any instances or suspicions of academic dishonesty
Documenting and communicating findings from research in a factual manner
