Each of the academic units of the University of Pittsburgh expect students to follow a similar code of academic integrity recommended by the Provost's office.
"A student has an obligation to exhibit honesty and to respect the ethical standards of the academy in carrying out his or her academic assignments. Without limiting the application of this principle, a student may be found to have violated this obligation if he or she:  Presents as one's own, for academic evaluation, the ideas, representations, or words of another person or persons without customary and proper acknowledgment of sources." (University of Pittsburgh, 2009, p. 6)

As a University of Pittsburgh student, you are expected to adhere to certain standards of academic integrity. To learn about those standards, the University Library System has developed a few short Academic Integrity modules in Canvas. You will learn about Pitt guidelines on plagiarism, honesty, ownership of intellectual property, and scholastically appropriate behavior established by the academic community and the University of Pittsburgh. The modules will explain these concepts in more detail. After you have reviewed the modules, you will take a quiz on all the aspects that you learned. When you complete the quiz successfully, with a score of 80% or more, you can sign up to receive a Credly badge.

"Plagiarism, specifically, is a term used to describe a practice that involves knowingly taking and using another person’s work and claiming it, directly or indirectly, as your own." (Neville, 2007, p. 28)
