Academic Integrity Policy

At Dalhousie University, we respect the values of academic integrity: honesty, trust, fairness, responsibility and respect. As a student, adherence to the values of academic integrity and related policies is a requirement of being part of the academic community at Dalhousie University.

Academic integrity means being honest in the fulfillment of your academic responsibilities thus establishing mutual trust.
