s this document on The Fundamental Values of
Academic Integrity makes clear, academic integrity is
essential to the success of our mission as educators. It
also provides a foundation for responsible conduct in
our students lives after graduation. The Center for
Academic Integrity, a consortium of 200 colleges and
universities, seeks to encourage campus conversations
about this vital topic. Since 1997, the Center has made
its home at Duke in affiliation with our Kenan Ethics
Program. Its presence has been a wonderful asset to the
efforts of Duke students, faculty, and administrators in
promoting academic integrity on our campus. I am
especially pleased, therefore, to have the opportunity to
share the Centers work with colleagues in higher
education across the country.
It can be difficult to translate values, even widely-shared
values, into actionbut action is badly needed now to
promote academic integrity on our campuses.
Researchers agree that rates of cheating among
American high school and college students are high
and increasing. Professor Donald McCabe of Rutgers
University, founder of the Center for Academic
Integrity, has found that more than 75 percent of
college students cheat at least once during their
undergraduate careers. Particularly alarming is research
gathered by Whos Who Among High School Students
indicating that 80 percent of high-achieving, collegebound students have cheated, that they think cheating is
commonplace, and that more than half do not consider
cheating a serious transgression. New technologies have
also made it easier to cheat: the Educational Testing
Service notes that one website providing free term papers
to students has averaged 80,000 hits per day.
Not all the news is depressing. The Center for Academic
Integritys research shows that campus norms and
practices, such as effective honor codes, can make a
significant difference in student behaviors, attitudes, and
beliefs. The organizations listed here join me in urging
our colleagues in higher education to read and discuss
this document and to pursue its recommendations for
institutional action. All of usfaculty, administrators,
students, trustees, and concerned alumnihave a
responsibility to get involved. Raising the level of student
academic integrity should be among our highest priorities
on college and university campuses.

Higher education and society benefit when colleges and
universities have standards of integrity that provide the
foundation for a vibrant academic life, promote scientific
progress, and prepare students for responsible citizenship. Many institutions, however, have neither
defined academic integrity nor expressly comCADEMIC INTEGRITY

THESE VALUES FLOW
PRINCIPLES OF BEHAVIOR
THAT ENABLE ACADEMIC
The Center for Academic Integrity (CAI)
defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five
fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness,
respect, and responsibility. From these
values flow principles of behavior that
enable academic communities to translate
ideals into action.
An academic community flourishes when its
members are committed to the five fundamental
values. Integrity is built upon continuous conversations about how these values are, or are not, embodied in
institutional life. As these conversations connect with
institutional mission statements and everyday policies and
practices, a climate of integrity is sustained and nurtured.
Vigorous academic integrity policies and procedures, with
faculty and student support, promote the learning process
and the pursuit of truth. This also helps create a stronger
civic culture for society as a whole.
Research by CAI members and many others shows that
student cheating is on the rise and that the pressures and
opportunities for dishonest behavior are increasing in
many academic and professional contexts. Thoughtful,
wide-ranging, and effective action is required to reverse
these trends. The CAI invites educators, students, and
citizens to contribute to this effort.
I. H O N E S T Y
An academic community of integrity advances the
quest for truth and knowledge by requiring intellectual
and personal honesty in learning, teaching, research,
Honesty is the foundation of teaching, learning, research,
and service and the prerequisite for full realization of trust,
fairness, respect, and responsibility. Campus policies
uniformly deplore cheating, lying, fraud, theft, and other
dishonest behaviors that jeopardize the rights and welfare
of the community and diminish the worth of academic
Honesty begins with oneself and extends to others. In the
quest for knowledge, students and faculty alike must be
honest with themselves and with each other, whether in
the classroom, laboratory, or library, or on the playing field.
Cultivating honesty lays the foundation for lifelong
integrity, developing in each of us the courage and insight
to make difficult choices and accept responsibility for
actions and their consequences, even at personal cost.

III. F A I R N E S S
An academic community of integrity establishes clear
standards, practices, and procedures and expects fairness
in the interactions of students, faculty, and administrators.
Fair and accurate evaluation is essential in the educational
process. For students, important components of fairness
are predictability, clear expectations, and a consistent and
just response to dishonesty. Faculty members also have a
right to expect fair treatment, not only from students but
also from colleagues and their administration.
All campus constituencies have a role in ensuring fairness,
and a lapse by one member of the community does not
excuse misconduct by another. Rationalizations such as
everyone does it or the curve was too high do not
justify or excuse dishonesty.

IV. R E S P E C T
An academic community of integrity recognizes the
participatory nature of the learning process and honors
and respects a wide range of opinions and ideas.
To be most rewarding, teaching and learning demand
active engagement and mutual respect. Students and
faculty must respect themselves and each other as individuals, not just as a means to an end. They must also respect
themselves and each other for extending their boundaries
of knowledge, testing new skills, building upon success,
and learning from failure.

ACADEMIC HONESTY IN

AND OTHER PAPERS
CARLETON COLLEGE, 1990
Students show respect by
attending class, being on time,
paying attention, listening to
other points of view, being
prepared and contributing to
discussions, meeting academic
deadlines, and performing to the
best of their ability. Being rude,
demeaning, or disruptive is the
antithesis of respectful conduct.
Members of the faculty show
respect by taking students ideas
seriously, providing full and honest feedback on their work, valuing their aspirations and
goals, and recognizing them as individuals.
All must show respect for the work of others by acknowledging their intellectual debts through proper identification of sources.
Once again, the interdependence of the values that
constitute academic integrity becomes apparent. Part of
respecting people involves fair and honest treatment, and
all of this supports an environment of trust.

respect for one another on your campus? In what ways?

Being responsible means taking action against wrongdoing,

At a minimum, individuals should take responsibility for
their own honesty and should discourage and seek to
prevent misconduct by others. This may be as simple as
covering ones own answers during a test or as difficult as
reporting a friend for cheating, as required by some honor
codes. Whatever the circumstances, members of an

HOW TO DEVELOP A STRONG
P RO G RA M F O R ACA D EM I C
The call to promote academic integrity places responsibility upon everyone in the educational community to balance
high standards with compassion and concern. From its
study of the processes and practices of successful academic
integrity programs, the Center for Academic Integrity has
developed seven recommendations that are appropriate to
every institution of higher education.
An academic institution should:
1. Have clear academic integrity statements, policies, and
procedures that are consistently implemented.
2. Inform and educate the entire community regarding
academic integrity policies and procedures.
3. Promulgate and rigorously practice these policies and
procedures from the top down, and provide support to
those who faithfully follow and uphold them.
4. Have a clear, accessible, and equitable system to
adjudicate suspected violations of policy.
5. Develop programs to promote academic integrity
among all segments of the campus community. These
programs should go beyond repudiation of academic
dishonesty and include discussions about the
importance of academic integrity and its connection to
broader ethical issues and concerns.
6. Be alert to trends in higher education and technology
affecting academic integrity on its campus.
7. Regularly assess the effectiveness of its policies and
procedures and take steps to improve and rejuvenate them.
All institutions should encourage actions and policies that
promote and justify the values of academic integrity and
highlight their interconnectedness. Campus dialogue,
national conversation, and institutional action are the keys
to the process of strengthening academic integrity. Our
campus cultures and our civic culture will be the better for
