Student Advocacy has celebrated the 10th Anniversary of its Annual Academic Integrity Week!

View the history of Integrity Week

Academic integrity week is an annual event, involving a week-long focus on academic integrity issues. Activities and events are planned to promote awareness and provide information to all members of the university community.

Many students, staff and administrators joined us for cupcakes and cookies on Wednesday, November 1, 2006 from 12:00-1:30. We provided a table and display set up in front of the University BookStore. Other events include:

  • A workshop for graduate students entitled “Writing and Citing: The Challenges of a Graduate Thesis”.
    Graduate school means writing, lots of writing.  Although most graduate students have experience writing academic papers, sometimes challenges arise when writing a thesis.  In this session, staff from the Learning Assistance Centre and the Student Advocacy Office will review important elements of research writing and citing and provide strategies for avoiding pitfalls to successfully complete a thesis. Prize draw for a U of M Bookstore gift certificate following workshop.
