The Importance of Being Honest

Academic integrity is of vital importance to any serious educational institution. The art of scholarship demands a rigid insistence on giving credit where credit is due, and any failure to do so undermines not only the value of honest students' work, but also the academic integrity of the University and the value of a McGill degree.

This site provides resources that can help students avoid dishonest work and the disciplinary measures that go with it, as well as useful information for teaching staff.
