What is "Academic Integrity"?

Academic Integrity

The Pace University Student Handbook  defines Academic Integrity as the requirement of students " be honest and ethical in satisfying their academic assignments and requirements. Academic integrity requires that...a student must demonstrate independent intellectual academic achievements."

What does this mean?

Academic Integrity is essentially a standard by which students produce and share their work. It demonstrates the origin of ideas, data, and expression that we use in our scholarly work, and giving credit to where it is due throughout the research and scholarly process.

The three main pillar of this idea are:

1. Understanding academic integrity as a cornerstone of intellectual and academic achievement

2. Defining and avoiding plagiarism

3. Scholarship is a conversation, and information has value.
