About the Office of Academic Integrity
The Office of Academic Integrity (OAI) promotes and supports a culture of academic integrity by promoting student learning, holding students accountable in the learning and research processes, supporting faculty in creating learning environments, and partnering with the campus community to fairly and consistently enforce academic policies.
Academic Integrity at USC
The university as an instrument of learning is predicated on the existence of an environment of integrity. As members of the academic community, faculty, students and administrative staff share the responsibility for maintaining this environment. Faculty have the primary responsibility for establishing and maintaining an atmosphere and attitude of academic integrity such that the enterprise may flourish in an open and honest way. Students share this responsibility for maintaining standards of academic performance and classroom behavior conducive to the learning process. Administrative staff are responsible for the establishment and maintenance of procedures to support and enforce those academic standards. Thus, the entire university community bears the responsibility for maintaining an environment of integrity and for confronting incidents of academic dishonesty.
