Encouraging Academic Integrity

The Center for Academic Integrity (CAI) also supports the "shared responsibility" of academic integrity. The CAI points to the "10 Principles of Academic Integrity" created by Donald McCabe and Gary Pavela:

  1. Affirm the importance of academic integrity
  2. Foster a love of learning
  3. Treat students as ends in themselves
  4. Promote an environment of trust in the classroom
  5. Encourage student responsibility for academic integrity
  6. Clarify expectations for students
  7. Develop fair and relevant forms of assessment
  8. Reduce opportunities to engage in academic dishonesty
  9. Challenge academic dishonesty when it occurs
  10. Help define and support campus-wide academic integrity standards
