Academic Integrity at Seneca

Every member of the Seneca community is expected to practice and incorporate the six fundamental values of academic integrity in all aspects of their academic career:

honesty • trust  fairness  respect  responsibility  courage

As an educator, you play an important role in modeling and promoting academic integrity values for your students. One way of ensuring that your students understand the expectations at Seneca is to embed plagiarism & citation tutorials and/or packages specific to Academic Integrity in your courses.
