What is academic integrity?
Academic integrity is the foundation for credible academic practice including research, verifiable qualifications and sound scholarly practice. All staff and students at Monash are expected to maintain academic integrity. Doing so successfully involves developing an understanding of what academic integrity is, as well as mastering an array of skills that allow us to interact effectively with the ideas of others, while presenting our own ideas appropriately.
Breaches of academic integrity include plagiarism, collusion, contract cheating, final assessment misconduct, fraud and falsification.
A broad range of resources exist to support staff and students in developing their understanding of academic integrity, as well as raising awareness of the various policies and procedures relating to this topic at Monash.
The academic integrity strategy at Monash is underpinned by three core dimensions, recognising that academic integrity is complex and multi-faceted.
