Academic integrity is a fundamental value upon which colleges and universities are built. At Tiako University, students and learners are expected to demonstrate academic integrity by completing their own work; assignments and assessments by themselves and on time. Submission of work from another person without source citation can result in a failing grade or be reported for appropriate sanctions or disciplinary actions that may lead to dismissal from the University.
All students and learners, in addition to faculty, administrators and staff are expected to adhere to the following five fundamental values defined by the Center for Academic Integrity, State University of New York, that characterize an academic community of integrity:
- Honesty: The quest for truth and knowledge
requires intellectual and personal honesty in learning, teaching, research and
- Trust: Academic institutions must foster a
climate of mutual trust in order to stimulate the free exchange of ideas.
- Fairness: All interactions among students,
faculty and administrators should be grounded in clear standards, practices and
- Respect: Learning is acknowledged as a
participatory process, and a wide range of opinions and ideas is respected.
- Responsibility: A thriving community demands
personal accountability on the part of all members and depends upon action in
the face of wrong doing.
All members of the Tiako academic community are expected to assist in maintaining the integrity of the University, which includes reporting incidents that violate our Statement on Integrity and Commitment.
