Academic Integrity Ambassadors

About Us

Academic Integrity Ambassadors

Each school selects at least one Ambassador who partners closely with the Office of Academic Integrity and serves as an advisor and resource for instructors navigating academic misconduct incidents. They can provide guidance on appropriate reporting processes, assist instructors when evaluating appropriate outcomes aligned with violation severity, and facilitate conversations between instructors and students. 


They are available to provide support and consultation when needed. This partnership empowers instructors with access to additional tools and resources to cultivate an environment of academic excellence built on the principles of honesty, trust, and ethical conduct.
