The Center for Academic Integrity (CAI) defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. From these values flow principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals into action.
Academic integrity provides the foundation for learning, teaching, research and service at Queen's University. Its central values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility enable instructors, students and staff to contribute to a community of knowledge dedicated to the freedom of inquiry and open exchange that characterizes the educational environment at Queen's.
Academic integrity is a concept used to define the academic community in the Faculty of Arts and Science, at Queen's University and in post-secondary educational institutions throughout North America.
Students should inform themselves of proper academic practices to ensure the integrity of all their work.
Instructors have the responsibility to promote academic integrity in the classroom and to oversee student performance to ensure academic practices consistent with academic integrity.
