Academic integrity is a foundation of our university community’s intellectual life. What does it mean to act with academic integrity? Acting with academic integrity means not ‘cheating’ to get ahead. U of T supports the International Center for Academic Integrity’s definition of academic integrity as acting with honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage in all academic matters. 

The University of Toronto has so many resources to help you if you’re feeling stuck or confused by an assignment or in a course.  The first place to start is always your instructor, who can also tell you about further resources available within your faculty and department.  There is lots of help available when you need it. Just ask if you’re not sure where to find it!

This website contains smart strategies to avoid academic misconduct, and information on academic integrity processes and procedures at U of T.  It also provides information about our University’s Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters.

Have a rewarding academic year!
