Academic Integrity for Instructors

Academic Misconduct

The regulations set out in the Code of Student Behaviour (“the Code”) cover everything you need to know about the procedures for dealing with academic misconduct. Section 30.5.4 focuses on Procedures for Instructors in Cases Respecting Inappropriate Academic Behaviour of the Code.
