17.1 Definition

It is the responsibility of all members of the Humber learning community (e.g. students, faculty, staff and administration) to uphold academic integrity in teaching, learning, evaluation, research, and creative activities across all learning settings regardless of format. Cultures of integrity are maintained and strengthened when all members of the learning community share the responsibility and commitment to refrain from engaging in acts of academic dishonesty.

  • Academic integrity is defined as a commitment by all members of the learning community to the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage (International Center for Academic Integrity [ICAI], 2021). 
  • Academic dishonesty impacts everyone. This behaviour undermines the credibility of Humber’s credentials, diminishes trust between members of the learning community, threatens the integrity of learning, and compromises the future career and learning opportunities for Humber graduates. Humber takes academic dishonesty seriously and will respond to individual offenses with appropriate penalties as per the process outlined in section 17.3.
