Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is defined as "a commitment to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility", and “the courage to act on them even in the face of adversity" (Fishman, 2014, p.16).  It is driven by our ECU values of Integrity, Respect, Rational Inquiry and Personal Excellence.  Developing a culture of academic integrity is a shared responsibility between all ECU Students and Staff.  The aim of this website is to support you, as an ECU Student, meet your responsibilities as part of our academic community and to help you avoid academic misconduct.
