What is Academic Integrity?
The University of Toronto Scarborough is a member of the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) and as such, adheres to ICAI’s definition of academic integrity, which is dedicated to six specific fundamental values:
“honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage”
As a member of the University of Toronto community, we must all do our part to maintain the respect and recognition of our academic institution. As such, it is everyone’s responsibility to understand the rules and regulations of the university, including the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters.
The Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters protects academic integrity at the University. Descriptions and examples of academic offences sanctioned under the Code can be found at The Code in Brief.
Who We Are
