A Shared Responsibility

Students and faculty both have a role to play in promoting academic integrity.

  • Students have the “informal authority” to influence their peers and take control of their own behaviors and choices.
  • Students are often aware of cheating when the professor isn’t (e.g., during out-of-class assignments).
  • They also see temptations and opportunities where the professor doesn’t, and therefore they have a role to play in promoting integrity as well.

See PNW’s Integrity Guide

  • Faculty have authority to decide classroom rules and set up the classroom structure.
  • Faculty can create healthy ethical classrooms and reduce cheating temptations and opportunities.
