Academic Integrity | Home

Who We Are:

The Academic Integrity Unit (AIU) in the Office of the Dean handle all academic offence cases at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). We are a neutral party with respect to all cases and is neither an advocate for students or faculty nor a decision-maker in the process. We also serve as an information resource that strives to promote values of integrity and educational excellence at UTM. 

In regards to academic integrity, the primary role of the AIU is to: 

  • Educate, inform and encourage faculty, staff, and students on issues related to academic integrity through a variety of workshops and seminars
  • Act as a resource to provide information about the process involved in academic offence cases 
  • Ensure that all academic case files brought forward by Department Chairs are appropriately completed
  • Handle allegations of academic misconduct in relation to the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters

You will find useful resources and information related to academic integrity and its importance at UTM. We encourage all students and instructors who are visiting our website to explore how we can collectively create a positive learning environment that emphasizes the value of academic integrity to all members of our community.

I (we) wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land. More information.
