Maintaining Academic Integrity at Webster

Academic work is challenging: as a student, you are expected to manage classes, demonstrate critical thinking, and be responsible for your own learning. In addition, you are expected to maintain academic integrity as a college student.

What does academic integrity mean? It means exhibiting honest behavior and taking responsibility for all of the academic work you submit. It also means giving credit to all of your sources and using proper documentation in a paper assignment or project. When you display academic integrity, you can take pride in knowing that you are a part of an academic community of students and faculty who also work hard to uphold the same values of honesty, trust, fairness, and equity.

Academic Integrity Resources

Part of maintaining academic integrity is utilizing the resources available to you as a student at Webster University. We have a website called Academic Integrity at Webster that provides resources, explains documentation styles related to academic integrity, and helps you navigate through frequently asked questions.

Please also visit the Academic Resource Center online, where writing coaches are available to answer questions and give tips on achieving academic integrity.
