Academic Integrity

At SCU, we value academic integrity. Academic integrity encompasses the practice of acting honestly and fairly when engaging in learning, teaching and research. We highlight to students from the start of their studies that integrity involves honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. For students this often means making sure that they have provided their own work, and  have acknowledged the work of others and not to claim it as their own. For academics there is a high expectation that academic integrity will be inherent in your teaching and research. It is incumbent that you model what it means to maintain academic integrity which includes understanding and acknowledging copyright and potential plagiarism.
