Academic Integrity at the University of Maryland University College

The University of Maryland University College works to address the issues of plagiarism and academic integrity across its curriculum by providing tools and resources for both students and faculty through three institutional offices: Information and Library Services (ILS), the Effective Writing Center (EWC), and the Center for Intellectual Property (CIP). These offices share twin goals: 1) arming students with the means to avoid accusations of plagiarism; and 2) assisting faculty in teaching about AI and detecting and preventing plagiarism.

This web page attempts to give UMUC students and faculty a central location to access the wealth of tools, guides, and resources available through UMUC.
