What is the Academic Integrity Statement?
At the end of 2016, the Academic Senate established the Student Advisory Group on Academic Integrity. This Group developed a positively framed statement of values, rights and responsibilities in relation to academic integrity, that applies to all of Macquarie’s academic community. The statement will form the foundation of an institutional wide communication strategy and will underpin the culture and approach to academic integrity at the University.
The draft statement is available online for consultation. Feedback can be submitted via the online form by 26 April.
The statement will be finalised at a workshop on 4 May 2017. During the workshop, we will:
- Identify and clarify contributions made during the consultation period;
- Provide a further opportunity for staff, students and University work units/departments to provide feedback and have input into the draft statement and values; and
- Work toward alignment on a final Academic Integrity foundational statement and values for recommendation to the Academic Senate.
