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 for all ECU Students and Staff. The aim of this website is to support you, as an ECU Student, meet your responsibilities as part of the academic community and to avoid academic misconduct.
ECU has three core documents that underpin the University’s commitment to academic integrity which can be accessed below. As a Student you have a responsibility to be aware of these.
If you become aware of an instance of academic misconduct or cheating please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Include in your e-mail the name of the student who you think may be cheating, the unit it refers to and details of the academic misconduct. The more information you include the better for an investigation.
You can also seek support, speak from your Tutor or Unit Coordinator.
