Academic integrity is a key value of post-secondary institutions. However, integrity is an important value to apply to all areas of a student’s current and future life. This course will discuss integrity as a core value in our lives not only as students, but also as workers and global citizens. The course will focus on:

  • Defining personal integrity
  • Inter-cultural perspectives on personal integrity
  • Examining our own personal integrity values
  • Applying personal integrity in academic, professional and global contexts
  • Contributing to group/organizational integrity
  • Personal integrity and leadership
  • Exercising self-reflection regarding integrity

I spent the summer preparing for university. As a recent high school grad, I wasn’t prepared for the change and the “real life” nature of university learning. I found this course not only helped me to understand the expectations of university, and my career, but it also helped me to appreciate the implications of the decisions I will be making on the rest of my life.
