Information for Staff

The University’s approach to cases of academic misconduct is fundamentally educational. The process for dealing with these cases is designed to enable students to better understand the nature of academic misconduct and the high standards of academic integrity that are expected. The sanctions available in confirmed cases of misconduct are intended to signal the importance that the University places on maintaining these high standards and to communicate this to students.

Staff should do their utmost to ensure that their students understand and conduct themselves in accordance with these standards.

The Senate adopted an Academic Honor Code for students in June 2005, and a Procedural Framework Governing Violations of Academic Integrity for the University in April 2015.
