Academic Integrity Committee (AIC)
The Academic Integrity Committee (AIC) is a vital component in academic integrity. The AIC is composed of faculty members and student representatives, and their primary responsibility is adjudicating cases.
The AIC handles a wide range of cases related to academic dishonesty. These cases can include plagiarism, cheating, unauthorized collaboration, falsification of data, and forms of academic misconduct. The committee investigates each case with fairness and due process for all parties involved.
The Office of Student Affairs plays a crucial role in supporting the AIC. The Director of Student Affairs and the Learning Strategist for Academic Integrity work together to provide guidance and resources to students, staff, and faculty to assist in resolving academic integrity cases.
Student Affairs professionals serve as advocates that offer support and guidance to students. The Learning Strategist assists students throughout the case process and helps them understand their rights and responsibilities.
Indigenous Academic Integrity
The six core values replicate The Secwépemc Nation’s Research Ethics Guidelines. The Secwépemc Nation has been knowledge-making and researching for millennia. Academic Integrity and Secwépemc research principles advocate for conducting appropriate and effective methods of knowledge seeking, which include respecting the interconnectedness of knowing, doing, and learning.
