Academic Integrity Digital Poster Contest Winners

Sitting on a background of blue swirls, there is a series of 7 boxes containing text; some resemble web browser windows. A pink-framed browser-like box with a white background reads “What should academic integrity look like for students at UBCO?” and a black cursor clicks on the words “Let's find out!”. There are squiggly red lines underneath the words academic integrity. A blue-framed box with a white background contains a human figure holding a laptop with a question mark beside their head. The text reads: “What does academic misconduct include? Collaborating on exams meant to be taken individually. Using unauthorized past examination materials. Passing off someone else's work as your own.” A blue and white box containing four smaller boxes in varying shades of blue reads “Cheating is tempting, but you can always: Seek help from a tutor or attend study sessions. Visit office hours and have a professor clarify things for you. Plan ahead! Don’t leave assignments to the last minute. Spend time finding a study strategy that works best for you.” Next to this, a similar window shows an image of a bridge collapsing and reads “What would our world look if every engineer cheated their way to a degree? Or if every media major cheating their way to a degree?” Directly below, a news caster reads from a script, stating, “In other news, Riverdale has been renewed for a 25th season.” A plain white box reads in all capitals “Integrity (and our future) begins with you.” The word “you” is highlighted in blue. Another blue window contains four blue and black icons: a gavel, a human head with cogs, a stack of books, and a podium with three people standing on each level. It reads: “But why should I care about integrity? Getting caught taking part in any academic misconduct could result in a failing grade or expulsion. Your career will require you to truly understand and be competent in your field of study. Cheating is not fair to other students who are putting honest effort into their academics. Holding yourself accountable for your own success will help you became the best version of yourself.”
