Why is academic integrity important?
At UC San Diego, we train the next generation of citizens, and society demands that our graduates be ethical, accountable, and respectful.
UC San Diego's academic community constructs new knowledge and invents solutions to perennial world problems, and society trusts that we do this in morally responsible ways with the utmost transparency, fairness, and responsibility.
Without integrity, we fail to meet those expectations, the reputation and survival of UCSD is threatened, and the value of your degree is diminished.
