Welcome to the UOIT Academic Integrity site. Academic integrity is a concern at every postsecondary institution. At UOIT, we see it as a community responsibility, one that involves the participation of the university, the faculty members and the students. We want to create a culture of integrity at all levels and model this behaviour to our students. This site will provide you with some tips and information about how to work collaboratively with your students to prevent academic misconduct.

This section contains information for instructors on academic integrity -- how to design your course assignments to help reduce plagiarism or cheating, how to teach your students about it, what to do if you catch misconduct, and so on. Details about what constitutes academic misconduct can be found in the Student section of this website. Detailed information can also be found in the Handbook on Academic Integrity for Instuctors and in the Policies and Forms section.
