Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Academic integrity is a concern at every post-secondary institution. At Ontario Tech 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.
