What is Academic Citizenship?

Academic citizenship encompasses the benefits and responsibilities of belonging to the academic community, including as they relate to research, teaching, learning, and all interactions with and within the academic community. The principles of academic citizenship extend to community engagement, research activities, university-affiliated activities, and other activities where you represent the University of Alberta. 

Every member of the university community enjoys certain rights and advantages related to academic freedom and, as a result, has a shared responsibility for academic integrity. Following principles of academic integrity, equity, diversity, and inclusivity, academic citizenship safeguards research and scholarship integrity, maintains the value of your degree, contributes to a rich academic culture, and ensures the safety, dignity and inclusion of all members of the academic community.
