Academic Integrity at UBC

Academic integrity is both a value and a set of skills that must be learned and refined over time. Instructors have a responsibility to set clear expectations around academic integrity in their courses, to model honest behaviour as teachers and scholars and to make space for students to develop their understanding of academic integrity. Students should aspire to meet these expectations in their coursework, contribute to their own learning and seek support when they have questions.
