Academic Integrity influences all aspects of learning, research, and teaching. It means being honest, fair, respectful, and responsible in all you do as a student or teacher. These values are demonstrated through transparency in your learning methods, how you develop content, your research, and your teaching.

A focus on academic integrity is vital to achieving the Wendt Character Initiative's goal to shape "people of integrity whose lives are characterized by truthfulness, honesty, and stewardship." To help encourage academic integrity on the University of Dubuque's campus and beyond, we have compiled several resources for students and faculty.
