Teaching Academic Integrity

Faculty members have an important role when it comes to promoting Academic Integrity at Toronto Metropolitan University. As faculty, you set the example and model the behaviours inherent in Academic Integrity. From the first class and throughout the academic year, your actions not only influence students, but send a message to students, teaching assistants and the university community about our commitment to the standards and expectations of the university.
