Academic Integrity Week

From Oct. 16–20, 2023, students, staff and faculty are invited to learn how they can uphold academic integrity in their work, among their peers, and in the campus community.


Throughout your university experience, you'll likely encounter instances where your academic integrity is tested, whether it's during group work, online classes, final exams, completing research or more. It's important to be knowledgeable of what constitutes academic integrity so you can have a rewarding learning experience, uphold ethical learning practices and avoid academic misconduct situations.

As a campus community, we all play a part in upholding academic integrity. That's why during Academic Integrity Week, groups from across UCalgary are hosting events and sharing resources to keep students, professors, TAs and staff informed and aware.
