Congratulations to the students, faculty and administrators involved in developing an excellent Cape Breton University Academic Plan.
The presidential task force, made up of faculty and administrators, adopted "academic integrity" as the guiding value to bolster the credibility of its faculty, programs and degrees.
The plan itself focuses heavily on academic integrity not only as an admirable but an essential institutional value, widely respected among competing institutions and governments in Nova Scotia and Canada. It is a significant part of the evolution and development of Cape Breton University as a credible post-secondary institution in Canada and the world.
Academic integrity should now be ensconced at all levels of the institution and should be top of mind to people working there. The growing presence of international students has caused us to examine our biases and prejudices towards others. So, how we treat each other, respect and value our associations will become a credit to the institution as a whole.
