You’ve probably heard your instructors emphasize expectations around academic integrity, but do you have a clear understanding of what academic integrity actually is? How is it related to academic misconduct? And how does plagiarism fit in?

Completing this introductory module will strengthen your understanding of why academic integrity is vital to our MRU community, explain how it’s defined in the new MRU policy, and help you feel more confident when making decisions related to your academic work.
