Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a commitment to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage (ICAI, 2021). 

York is committed to maintaining the highest standards of academic integrity in all areas of academic life, including teaching, learning, and research. Everyone at the university has a role to play in upholding the values of academic integrity. To that end, this website provides information and resources to help foster awareness of academic integrity, clarify York’s expectations for maintaining academic integrity, and explain the process for suspected breaches.
