Academic Integrity (AI) refers to a set of shared values, principles, behaviors, and skills that lie at the heart of learning and scholarship.  Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) is commitment to academic excellence, reflecting its core values of respect, integrity, service and excellence.

 

TAMIU students are expected to maintain the highest level of integrity throughout their academic and professional pursuit.  It is the responsibility of TAMIU students to report acts of academic dishonesty.  Failure to report undermines the learning process and compromises the quality and reputation of a TAMIU degree.

 

 What is Academic Integrity?



According to the Center for Academic Integrity (CAI), academic integrity is defined “as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility.” To report acts that violate the academic rule, click here.

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement is prepared to support and help students understand the value of academic integrity and to avoid academic dishonesty.   All members of the TAMIU community are responsible for knowing and practicing university-wide rules, policies and procedures regarding academic integrity, as well as any procedure specific to their school, program, and course.
