Why is Academic integrity is important?

Academic integrity is important because dishonest behaviour undermines your learning and the credibility of Massey University. High standards of academic integrity safeguard your reputation, reflect well on the university and contribute to the wellbeing of society. Conversely, breaches of academic integrity diminish you, the university, and public trust in academic endeavours.

 Whilst at Massey University you belong to an academic community and have responsibilities to that community. Upholding these responsibilities maintains the high regard in which Massey University qualifications are held and fosters public support for academic ideals and Massey.

 Be proud of the high standards of academic integrity that we strive for and the preservation of Massey’s reputation. Society flourishes when high standards of integrity are evident.
