What is Academic Integrity?

Academic integrity describes a commitment to honesty, truthfulness and
accountability in teaching, learning and research.


As a critical piece of the learning environment and a fundamental core value of any academic institution, academic integrity directly links the credibility of an institution’s scholarship, research, certificates and diplomas.


Red River College Polytechnic is a member of the International Center for Academic Integrity and defines academic integrity as the requirement to be honest and truthful in all College relationships, activities and commitments. From these fundamental values of honesty and truth flow consistent, ethical behaviour when engaged in academic work, or any other academic activity.

Academic integrity hinges on six fundamental values, as defined by the International Center for Academic Integrity:

•    Honesty
•    Trust
•    Fairness
•    Respect
•    Responsibility
•    Courage
