Academic Integrity Tutorial: Welcome

Miytôtâkewin. Tawaw. Bienvenue.


Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan's learning tutorial on Academic Integrity.

Land Acknowledgement

As members of the scholarly community at the University of Saskatchewan, we acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We pay our respect to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another. We recognize that some may be completing this tutorial from other traditional Indigenous lands and ask that you take a moment to make your own Land Acknowledgement to the peoples of those lands. In doing so, we are actively participating in reconciliation as we navigate our time, learning and supporting each other.

Academic Integrity

This tutorial will introduce you to the concept of academic integrity, which is a cornerstone of all the work you will do at university. The International Centre for Academic Integrity proposes six core values to help guide your work, ensuring that it is fair and honest, and received in good faith. These core values (honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage) provide an important foundation for the learning you will do and for the fair assessment of the work you produce.

Our Learning Charter

While every University of Saskatchewan college and discipline contribute to the academic community differently, they all share the same set of values for academic integrity. These values are echoed in our Learning Charter and include

  • Being able to locate, understand, evaluate and use information effectively, ethically, legally, and with cultural appropriateness.
  • Developing and applying appropriate skills of research, inquiry, and knowledge creation and translation.
  • Embracing responsibilities to oneself and others in ways that are authentic and meaningful.

At the end of the tutorial, you should have a better understanding of your responsibilities regarding all academic work, your rights if suspected of misconduct, the procedures in place to help you, and the supports and services available to ensure you succeed within the larger scholarly community.


There are four modules in this tutorial that take about 45 minutes each to complete.

  • Module 1 is about academic integrity and the values associated with it
  • Module 2 is about student rights and responsibilities and the university’s policies that govern academic misconduct
  • Module 3 is the most recent addition and is about the ethical and responsible use of generative AI in your studies
  • Module 4 is about developing the academic skills that help to prevent academic misconduct

Proof of Completion

The Academic Integrity Tutorial may be required in multiple courses. At the end of each module, you will have the option to EMAIL, PRINT or save a PDF of your certificate. Please choose EMAIL and send the certificate to yourself. This will allow you to open/save the certificate to retrieve at a later date.
