Together, we can create a community dedicated to academic integrity and the pursuit of learning, by committing to the six fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, courage, and responsibility (ICAI, 2014). The students, faculty, staff and administrators are collectively responsible for demonstrating and upholding these shared values.
