Academic Integrity at CIRHR

Academic integrity is fundamental to learning and scholarship at the University of Toronto. Participating honestly, fully, responsibly, and fairly in this academic community ensures that the U of T degree you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement, and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As an IR/HR professional, you will be expected to exemplify the highest standard of integrity. That standard of utmost integrity is expected of all students during their time at CIRHR.

Familiarize yourself with the University of Toronto’s Code of Behaviour. It is the rule book for student and academic behaviour at the U of T, and you are expected to know the rules.

The University of Toronto treats cases of academic misconduct very seriously. All suspected cases of academic dishonesty will be investigated following the procedures outlined in the Code. The consequences for academic misconduct can be severe; potential sanctions include a failure in the course and a notation on your transcript or suspension from the university. If you have any questions about what is or is not permitted in a course, assignment, or test, please do not hesitate to contact your instructor or the CIRHR Coordinator of Graduate Studies, Professor Frank Reid.

If you have questions about appropriate research and citation methods, seek out additional information from your instructor, from the IRHR Library staff, or from other available campus resources like the U of T Writing Website or the University of Toronto Libraries’ Research Guide on Plagiarism.
