Academic Integrity at NAU
Academic integrity refers to honest and ethical conduct in all aspects of academic life. Integrity entails a firm adherence to a set of values, and the values most essential to an academic community are grounded in honesty with respect to all intellectual efforts of oneself and others. NAU expects every student to firmly adhere to a strong ethical code of academic integrity in all their scholarly pursuits.
We encourage all NAU campus community members to read and understand our Academic Integrity Policy to learn about academic integrity, and any processes involved when academic integrity violations occur.
This page houses a full suite of resources for students, faculty, and University Hearing Board membership to assist in upholding the highest academic integrity standards at NAU.
Resources for students Accordion Closed
NAU’s academic integrity online workshop for students is housed in our Blackboard (Bb Learn) course system. We’ve designed this online workshop using Bb Learn’s “Learning Module” tool, because it’s a great way to break down complicated information into smaller chunks. Students can also use it as a reference tool when they have integrity-related questions throughout their time at NAU.
If you don’t see the workshop in your Bb Learn course list, you can self-enroll (https://nau.edu/bb-self-enroll/321342).
Resources for faculty & administrators Accordion Closed
NAU’s academic integrity online workshop for faculty is housed in our Blackboard (Bb Learn) course system. We’ve designed this online workshop using Bb Learn’s “Learning Module” tool so that it can be self-paced, easy to access, and used as a reference when faculty have pedagogically-based, integrity-related questions throughout their time at NAU. Note: Detailed information for assigning the student-facing workshop is available in the faculty workshop.
If you don’t see the workshop in your Bb Learn course list, you can self-enroll.
In the unfortunate situation that an academic integrity violation occurs, we have prepared a set of communication templates for faculty and academic administrators to use. These will ensure clear, thorough, and timely communication can be made between faculty and students following the requirements set forth in our Academic Integrity Policy. We have also provided instructions to associate deans on checking for prior academic integrity violations.
Academic Integrity Hearing Board
NAU’s Academic Integrity Hearing Board (“Hearing Board”) is charged by the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs to review and render decisions on academic integrity violations referred to them by academic units. The membership of the Hearing Board is made up of faculty and student representatives from each academic college.
Training Accordion Closed
NAU’s academic integrity online workshop for the Hearing Board is housed in our Blackboard (Bb Learn) course system. This online workshop is required for all Hearing Board members. After the required training, it will continue to be available for all Hearing Board members to use it as a reference when integrity-related questions arise.
Hearing procedures & process Accordion Closed
The University Academic Integrity Hearing Board has developed formal processes and procedures to accompany the official NAU policy. All Hearing Board members must be familiar with these procedures and processes in order to carry out their charge in a knowledgable, fair, and equitable manner.
