Academic integrity is fundamental to all scholarly activity. Every member of the University community must learn and share knowledge with honesty and integrity.

Academic Integrity is "a commitment to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage." – International Center for Academic Integrity

This section provides students, professors and others with information and tools to work with integrity, discuss integrity (e.g., expectations, questions), identify and avoid the pitfalls of academic misconduct (including fraud), as well as to understand the consequences of misconduct. 

Each of us has a role to play. For example, students should know course and academic unit expectations regarding academic integrity and ask questions as necessary. Professors must convey expectations in their courses.

See our resources, policies and academic community support to help you foster a culture of academic integrity at uOttawa and throughout your career.

Academic integrity training module

All new undergraduate students must complete an academic integrity training module. They are automatically enrolled in Brightspace. There are also resources for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers doing courses and research.
