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.
Academic Integrity: Learn to Stop Worrying about It (Online) Workshop for Students
In this interactive workshop you will learn what Academic Integrity is at York and how you can demonstrate it. Through scenarios, you will identify different types of academic misconduct that can occur in student work and learn how you can avoid engaging in these behaviours and where you can get more support.
Additionally, this workshop will help increase your confidence when it comes to using sources and citing. Citation is about more than knowing where to add your commas; instead, it prepares you to be an active participant in conversations within your scholarly community and in your professional career.
Throughout the workshop, we will share current, scenario-based information that will help you navigate these topics successfully and provide you with a safe space where you have your questions about academic integrity answered and connect with other students on this topic.

Academic Integrity & Artificial Intelligence: Where are we now? Online Workshop for Instructors
We invite all who teach at York to join us for an update on how generative artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved over the past year, including an overview of its current capabilities and challenges to academic integrity.
We will learn ways to identify and mitigate types of academic misconduct that can occur using these tools, and will go beyond to explore teaching and assessment strategies that can not only support academic integrity but can also help build critical digital literacy regarding generative AI.
This interactive session will provide strategies and resources related to generative AI and academic integrity, with the opportunity to explore case scenarios and discuss related approaches with colleagues.
