Academic Integrity


Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (SCAI) is responsible for assisting with the promotion of academic integrity and the prevention of academic misconduct.  Through partnerships with faculty, instructors, administrators, staff, and students, we are dedicated to maintaining classrooms and a campus of integrity.

 

UCF is an Institutional Member with the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) https://academicintegrity.org/.  “ICAI defines academic integrity as a commitment to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage. By embracing these fundamental values, instructors, students, staff, and administrators create effective scholarly communities where integrity is a touchstone. Without them, the work of teachers, learners, and researchers loses value and credibility. More than merely abstract principles, the fundamental values serve to inform and improve ethical decision-making capacities and behavior. They enable academic communities to translate ideals into action.” The Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity.  3rd edition page 4.  https://academicintegrity.org/images/pdfs/20019_ICAI-Fundamental-Values_R12.pdf
