Academic Misconduct - Faculty Information

UFV is committed to maintaining and promoting instructional excellence and learning. Among the cornerstones of this commitment are academic integrity, and a mutual respect for all members of the university community. UFV students are expected to conduct themselves in a mature and responsible manner, and will be held responsible for their actions, whether acting alone or in a group.

Information for Faculty, Department Heads and Deans

When an instructor suspects or has evidence of academic misconduct, the first step is to review the Student Academic Conduct Policy (70). The policy describes academic misconduct and outlines the procedural steps in place to address student conduct violations. As an instructor, you are required to file a report (aka Disciplinary Action Notice) when there is evidence of academic misconduct. 


If you have questions regarding student conduct matters, consult with the Coordinator, Office for Academic Integrity and Appeals.
