Seneca is a member of the International Centre for Academic Integrity (ICAI), an association founded to combat cheating and plagiarism in higher education. ICAI defines Academic Integrity as a commitment
to the six fundamental values; honesty, respect, trust, fairness, responsibility and courage. (ICAI, Fundamental Values Project, 1999, 2013). The app is designed around these values.
The Seneca Integrity Matters app consists of engaging modules and games that will help you better understand academic integrity, some common misconceptions, and real-world applications of the concepts and policies. The modules provide examples of scenarios that connect the fundamental values to everyday practices. Your ability to apply these value in your own work is necessary to be a successful
and ethical learner.
At Seneca, the Academic Integrity policy is found here.
