When you enrol as a student or come to work at Flinders University you become a member of a community that is committed to principles of academic integrity. This commitment maintains Flinders’ reputation and ensures the quality of our research and graduates.
Academic integrity is an integral part of your work as well as the work of students. You are responsible for modelling good practice to your students, educating them in the requirements of academic integrity and the skills to enact it, and for responding to breaches when they occur.
It is crucial to communicate to students the importance of academic integrity. An open dialogue on the subject generates respect for the matter and for staff. If there is a perception that staff do not take academic integrity seriously, then students equally may not take it seriously.
