What is Academic Integrity?
The International Center for Academic Integrity defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage. In 2013, a task force revised the original version to include an updated sixth value: courage. (ICAI, Fundamental Values Project, 1999).
