Academic Integrity

Back to Teaching Topics

Academic integrity is the responsibility of both faculty and students at Purdue University. University students feel a lot of pressure to do well in their courses. Unfortunately, feelings of desperation and frustration can lead students to engage in cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty. In addition to knowing how to respond to incidents of academic dishonesty in a fair and professional manner, faculty should also know what can be done to prevent academic dishonesty. A number of actions can be taken both inside and outside the classroom to create and promote a climate of academic integrity, as well as to deal with instances of dishonesty.
