Academic Integrity

We provide faculty, staff and students with education, resources and support to foster the understanding and practice of academic integrity at Sheridan.

What is Academic Integrity?

The International Centre for Academic Integrity (ICAI) defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values:

  • honesty
  • trust
  • fairness
  • respect
  • responsibility
  • courage (ICAI, 2014)

Sheridan is strongly committed to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity and expects that all of its members maintain the highest standards of academic integrity throughout all areas of academic life, including teaching and learning, research, writing and all other scholarly work.

AI Event

On May 5, 2017 Sheridan had the honour of hosting the Academic Integrity Council of Ontario’s (AICO) annual event at our HMC campus.

This event brought together academic integrity practitioners from colleges and universities across the province.


Contest Winner: "What is Originality?"

Last fall, the AI Office held a contest for all students as a part of Library Awareness Week. This contest asked students to create an artifact that best reflected their response to the question: What is originality?

The winning entry was submitted by Elizabeth Parkes, a student in Sheridan’s Bachelor of Animation program.
