Academic Citizenship Session Series

What does academic citizenship mean in the Canadian academic culture and context? Why is it so important for international students to understand it as early as possible? How is it related to my study and research here as an international student?

Academic citizenship is an ethical framework that applies to the way we teach, learn, and do research. It comes with benefits and responsibilities, which are expected of all community members.

This free online series will address topics related to academic citizenship, including the appropriate use of information technology, policies related to academic integrity, and how to find the support you need to succeed throughout your studies.
