  • present research and scholarship according to ethical standards
  • teach their students how to conduct honest scholarship according to the University's values, standards and practices
  • respond to students' queries and concerns about proper acknowledgment and avoiding academic misconduct, including issues of plagiarism and collusion
  • report all academic misconduct to the relevant Academic Integrity Adviser (see Academic Integrity Procedures and Responsibilities 2015 for a full list)
