Introduction

Although many institutions describe with great detail what type of conduct constitutes academic dishonesty, most institutions barely outline what constitutes academic integrity. This guide will attempt to identify what some of the important scholarship on this issue has identified as the core meaning of academic integrity, the problem of academic dishonesty and possible solutions.

As scholars in training, students should appreciate the importance of academic integrity. Similarly, faculty and administrators must also acknowledge the importance of academic integrity in higher education and communicate this in the classroom and on campus. Without understanding by students, faculty and administrators of the importance of academic integrity, vibrant academic discourse is stymied. The information and resources in this guide and in the Virtual Academic Integrity Laboratory seek to foster greater understanding of the concept of academic integrity generally.
