Academic Integrity

Definition of academic integrity

Academic integrity means honesty and responsibility in scholarship. Students and faculty alike must obey rules of honest scholarship, which means that all academic work should result from an individual's own efforts. Intellectual contributions from others must be consistently and responsibly acknowledged. Academic work completed in any other way is fraudulent.
University of Illinois resources on academic integrity

The Policy & Procedures on Academic Integrity in Research & Publication from the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs articulates official University policy on academic integrity in research and publication and describes procedures for impartial fact-finding and fair adjudication of allegations of academic misconduct. The Academic Staff Handbook Chapter 5: Research and Teaching provides guidelines from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign faculty senate related to activities involved in teaching, in acquiring and using data in the course of conducting research, in authoring scholarly publications, and in interacting professionally with other individuals on this campus and elsewhere.
