SPH Academic Integrity Tutorial

Welcome to the Academic Integrity Tutorial for the UIC School of Public Health. Here at the School, we hope to promote an environment of professionalism based on the tenet of academic integrity. Academic integrity exists when students and faculty seek knowledge honestly, fairly, with mutual respect and trust, and accept responsibility and any consequences for their actions.

This tutorial will help to outline the major components of academic integrity and how engaging in acts of academic dishonesty can negatively affect your grades, peers, and future. Many students have been disciplined for their dishonest actions – don’t let this happen to you.

All students entering the School in Fall 2010 or later are required to successfully complete this tutorial. All other students are encouraged to complete the module to increase awareness of academic dishonesty offenses and learn how to avoid such instances in their assignments and research.

Before you begin the Academic Integrity Tutorial, please note the following:

  • Computer Requirements - The Tutorial requires Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser to operate properly. The newest Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser is available for free download.
  • Time Requirements - Please make sure you have budgeted enough time to complete the entire tutorial (we expect it to take approximately 30 minutes).
