Humber School of Health Sciences pilots initiative to support academic integrity

May 5, 2015

Humber College’s School of Health Sciences (SHS) has implemented a new pilot project that is intended to promote academic integrity among students in its Practical Nursing and Bachelor of Nursing programs. Students recently participated in a pledge ceremony in which they committed to upholding the values of courage, honesty, trust, responsibility, respect, and fairness in their educational and professional experiences. Jennie Miron, co-Chair of SHS’s Academic Integrity Committee, said that research has shown that honour pledges help reduce cheating on exams and assignments. The pledge ceremony is just one piece of a comprehensive focus on academic integrity within SHS at Humber. Humber News
