Instructor interacting with a group of students

Academic integrity is more than just "not cheating." Academic integrity is about learning, responsibility, accountability, fairness, respect, honesty, and trust. Ultimately, academic integrity is about the values we hold and that define our character – it is about what we choose to do, even when no one is looking, and it is about creating sound habits for the future.

Academic integrity is important because it is about the choices we make about how to complete your academic work and be a student at Miami University. It is about practicing the work ethic and responsibility that is expected of all Miami students and that will be expected in future endeavors. It is about being responsible to oneself, peers, and faculty and upholding the values of Miami University – espousing Love & Honor.
