Why is Academic Integrity Important?
Academic Integrity. It matters now, because it matters later.
"The greatest benefit of a culture of integrity may not be reduced student cheating. Instead, it may be the lifelong benefit of learning the value of living in a community of trust."
~ Donald McCabe and Linda Trevino
