ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICYThe online format of class delivery does not lower the Asper School’s academic integrity standards. Thesame high levels of academic integrity are expected this term as they are in previous terms.It is critical to the reputation of the Asper School of Business and of our degrees that everyone associatedwith our faculty behave with the highest academic integrity. As the faculty that helps create business andgovernment leaders, we have a special obligation to ensure that our ethical standards are beyond reproach.Any dishonesty in our academic transactions violates this trust. The University of Manitoba GeneralCalendar addresses the issue of academic dishonesty under the heading “Plagiarism and Cheating.”Specifically, acts of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to: using the exact words of a published or unpublished author without quotation marks andwithout referencing the source of these words (includes Chat messages posted during class)duplicating a table, graph or diagram, in whole or in part, without referencing the sourceparaphrasing the conceptual framework, research design, interpretation, or any other ideas ofanother person, whether written or verbal (e.g., personal communications, ideas from a verbalpresentation) without referencing the sourcecopying the answers of another student in any test, examination, or take-home assignmentrecording exam questions using any method, regardless of whether those are shared with otherssharing exam questions with those who are yet to take the exam, including future students orattempting to sell exam questionsproviding answers to another student in any test, examination, or take-home assignment orobtaining answers or other unauthorized help from anyone elsetaking any unauthorized materials into an examination or term test (crib notes), regardless ofwhether those are used during the examimpersonating another student or allowing another person to impersonate oneself for the purposeof attendance, earning class participation marks, submitting academic work, or writing any test orexaminationstealing or mutilating library materialsaccessing test prior to the time and date of the sittingchanging name or answer(s) on a test after that test has been graded and returnedsubmitting the same paper or portions thereof for more than one assignment, without discussionswith the instructors involvedGroup Projects and Group WorkMany courses in the Asper School of Business require group projects. Students should be aware thatgroup projects are subject to the same rules regarding academic integrity. All group members shouldexercise special care to ensure that the group project does not violate the policy on Academic Integrity.Should a violation occur, group members are jointly accountable unless the violation can be attributedto specific individuals.Some courses, while not requiring group projects, encourage students to work together in groups beforesubmitting individual assignments. If it’s unclear whether it is allowed, students are encouraged to seekclarification from the instructor to avoid violating the academic integrity policy.7 of 10
