Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity is a combination “how-to,” activities, and resource book to help schools move through the process of creating a school culture that fosters integrity. This book was written by a former high school principal who has spent the last decade as a leader in the field of ethical education, in collaboration with a professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut.
The first several pages of Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity offer suggestions for establishing an Academic Integrity Committee in a school, and for composing an honor code. The remainder of the book—in two separate sections—takes square aim at what the title of the book suggests: that academic integrity does not come from either the code or the council, but rather from the work done to create a culture where academic integrity is both the expectation and the norm (section 3) and that part of creating a culture entails integrating concepts of integrity into the curricular and extracurricular life of the school.
Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity includes a compact disk, for easier access to copies of the book’s handouts.
