Academic Integrity at ADU

  • Welcome

    The mission of Abu Dhabi University provides for a high quality education, along with developing the student's sense of ethics, morality, and social responsibility.

Members of the Abu Dhabi University community, compromising of students, faculty, and staff, are expected to promote ethical behavior and maintain the highest standards of academic, personal, and professional integrity in all facets of study, research, work, and the pursuit of career objectives.

    Abu Dhabi University Code of Honor

    The Code of Honor (COH) at Abu Dhabi University is an agreement between the institution and its community to promote academic integrity. Students, faculty, and staff members at Abu Dhabi University assume responsibility for upholding and sustaining the COH. It is the responsibility of the members of the Abu Dhabi University community to adhere to the strictest standards of academic integrity, honesty, fairness, and truthfulness and to refrain from engaging in acts of academic dishonesty, falsification, or deception. Read more …

    Academic Integrity Policy

    Those students that cheat are cheating themselves out of a real education. They deprive themselves not only of general knowledge, but also of the experience of learning how to learn. These experiences are part of what makes a university degree valuable to employers.”

  • Office of Academic Integrity

    The Office of Academic Integrity (OAI) was created to assist in maintaining an environment characterized with academic integrity (AI). The overall mission of the Office of Academic Integrity is to promote, foster, and maintain a culture grounded in ethics and morality for students, and other members of Abu Dhabi University community. This mission is achieved through continuous efforts in the following domains.

    • Raising awareness towards issues related to ethics, morality, and personal responsibility,
    • Educating students, faculty, and staff regarding different aspects of AI,
    • Formulating and implementing relevant polices and procedures, and
    • Adjudicating the cases of violation of Code of Honor.

     

    Since its creation in April 2009, the Office of Academic Integrity has enjoyed the necessary resources to fulfill its mission and achieve its objectives. The the Office of Academic Integrity continuously engages in educational activities by holding Information and Orientation Sessions for students and the community it serves. In addition, the Office of Academic Integrity continues its Academic Integrity Awareness Campaign through producing and disseminating educational videos, publishing brochures, posters, and leaflets. The awareness campaign undertaken by the Office of Academic Integrity also includes the consequences of failures to comply with academic integrity provisions. Read more …

    Effectiveness of the Office of Academic Integrity in Achieving its Objectives -- After a year, the success of the Office of Academic Integrity in achieving its mission can be demonstrated by different examples, including the results of surveys of students, faculty, and staff. The results of all surveys indicate that the Office of Academic Integrity, for the most part, has been successful in achieving its mission, and as a result of efforts of the Office of Academic Integrity, Abu Dhabi University community is much more aware of academic integrity and respect its principles and provisions. These results are testaments to success of the Office of Academic Integrity in promoting an academic environment grounded in ethical conduct.

    The continued efforts of the Office of Academic Integrity in promoting academic integrity have had positive impact on the students’ attitudes towards the principles of fairness and ethics. In addition, Abu Dhabi University’s continued insistence on the rules of ethical conduct has had a positive impact on the perceptions of the external constituencies vis-a-vis students commitments to upholding the qualities that define “good citizenship” (i.e., respect for personal responsibility, individual accountability, and above all, respect for fairness and ethics).

  • Office of Academic Integrity Structure

    AL AIN Campus of Abu Dhabi University has its own Office of Academic Integrity (OAI) to implement the provisions of the Academic Integrity Policy.

    The Office of Academic Integrity (OAI) was established in 2009, on the directive of the Executive Board of Governors of Abu Dhabi University, and under the leadership of the Chancellor. The responsibility for establishing OAI was entrusted to Dr. Jehan Zitawi, the Dean of the University College at the time. Dr. Zitawi, a widely respected academic leader and known for her unwavering dedication to academic integrity, ethics, and commitment to the wellbeing of Abu Dhabi University community, accepted the responsibility and built the necessary infrastructure to fulfill the mission of OAI.

    dean

    Representative of OAI on the AL AIN Campus

    Professor Ali Azad is the representative of OAI on the AL AIN Campus. As the representative of the OAI, Dr. Azad is responsible for the coordination of activities to ensure a consistent application of academic integrity related issues between the AL AIN and Abu Dhabi campuses.

    Dr. Azad perceives his current position as the Director of AL AIN Campus and his years of academic service as a Professor of Accounting as an asset to the effective implantation of the mandates of the OAI. Dr. Azad expresses his views on academic integrity within the context of the role of higher education in the intellectual development of one’s self.

    In his words:

    blockquote1.png“Higher education enriches the life and the attributes of good citizenship. The broad objective of higher education is to enhance one’s attributes of critical thinking, analytical ability, problem solving, and the tolerance for other’s viewpoints. These attributes can only be enhanced in an environment of higher learning founded on ethics and morality-- the two fundamental tenets of academic integrity.”blockquote2.png

    In March of 2011, and upon the departure of Dr. Zitawi from Abu Dhabi University, Dr. Ali Azad who was the representative of OAI in AL AIN campus, assumed the role of the Interim Head overseeing the operations of OAI at both campuses. Dr. Azad, also the Director of AL AIN Campus of Abu Dhabi University, views the significance of academic integrity within the overall role of higher education in the intellectual development of one’s self. In his words, higher education enriches good citizenship. The broad objective of higher education is to enhance one’s attributes of critical thinking, analytical ability, problem solving, and the tolerance for other’s viewpoints. These attributes can only be enhanced in an environment of higher learning founded on ethics and morality--the two fundamental tenets of academic integrity.

  • Academic Integrity and the Responsibilities of Students

    As members of Abu Dhabi University community, students bear substantial responsibility to uphold a culture of learning while adhering to the fundamental principles of ethics, honesty, and academic integrity. To that end, students are responsible to:

    • Understand Academic Integrity Policy (AIP) and its procedures
    • Report violations and suspected incidents of academic dishonesty - even relatively minor cases
    • Seek advice and support from the Office of Academic Integrity (OAI)
    • Access resources provided by OAI, faculty, and mentors at the Academic Success Center (ASC) in Abu Dhabi and AL AIN campuses
    • Request explanations or clarifications on any aspect of Abu Dhabi University Code of Honor and/or AIP, its provisions, and procedures
  • Academic Integrity and the Responsibilities of Faculty and Staff

    Certain standards of conduct are expected of all Abu Dhabi University employees. These standards of conduct are consistent with the professional standards of Abu Dhabi University, the culture and values of the UAE, and the applicable laws. The responsibility of faculty and staff in the area of academic integrity is multifaceted. Both faculty and staff at Abu Dhabi University are expected to foster a climate of teaching, learning, research, and academic services in an environment enriched by the highest standard of ethical conduct. Faculty and staff are also expected to serve as the role models by conducting themselves beyond reproach. Specifically, they are to:

    • Uphold the Code of Honor
    • Support strategies for the successful implementation of Academic Integrity Policy (AIP)
    • Provide exemplary conduct in accordance with the highest standard of ethics
    • Explain to students the Academic Integrity Policy, its provisions, and the Code of Honor
    • Pay special attention to the violations of academic integrity such as cheating and plagiarism
    • Explain to students the expectations regarding examinations protocols and completing assignments
    • Conduct careful proctoring of examinations
    • Articulate the expectations of full-participation of students in any team assignments and/or team projects
    • Direct students to access resources provided by OAI and Colleges to ensure academic honesty
    • Report to OAI all violations and suspected incidents of academic dishonesty
  • Plagiarism

    Plagiarism, by far, is the most common type of academic integrity violation. Technically, plagiarism is an “intentional theft of intellectual property,” and is subject to sanctions. The frequency of its occurrence (about 70% of all reported cases of violations) may indicate lack of understanding of the nature of the offense, as well as, lack of the element of “intent.” Plagiarism can often occur due to reasons, some of which are presented below (also see Handbook on Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism).

    • Believing that if the information is available in public domain (e.g., the Internet), there are no prohibitions regarding its use without acknowledgment
    • Lacking knowledge about the need to credit the sources of information
    • Lacking knowledge about proper methods of citation and referencing
    • Thinking copying the work of others is not an act of plagiarism
    • Wanting to get good grades (e.g., honor students or students with high GPAs are more likely to plagiarize than other students)
    • Believing that the act is “socially acceptable,” since others are doing the same”
    • Feeling that it will not be detected

    The necessary condition to minimize plagiarism is accepting the truth about three fundamental facts of:

    • Having the responsibility and moral obligation to tell the reader or the instructors that the work submitted is not original
    • Concealing the sources of work is “lying” and in virtually all value systems “lying” is wrong and unacceptable
    • Submitting work of others as one’s own is “stealing” – stealing of “intellectual property”
  • APA Citation style

    One of the reasons for plagiarism is poor practices in taking notes while researching a topic. Inability to take good notes may inadvertently result in copying from another person’s work without putting them in quotation marks. The result is plagiarism. Such inadvertent violation of AIP can be avoided by taking detailed notes, including the name of the author, name of the book or article, title of the article, year of publication, etc. The following four simple guidelines will minimize your exposure to the risk of plagiarism.

    Interpretations of the Academic integrity Policy

    To better understand the provisions of the Academic Integrity Policy, series of rules were formulated. These rules are operational interpretations of the provisions of Academic Integrity Policy at ADU which were distributed among the students in a leaflet. Accompanying the leaflet was the description of the method of referencing based on the American Psychological Association (APA) Style. Every student in Abu Dhabi University is expected to adhere to academic integrity rules and be in compliance with the APA style of referencing to avoid academic obstruction.

    Rules governing outcome assessment (e.g., quizzes and exams)

    • Do not copy another student’s test answers during an exam
    • Do not exchange information regarding an exam during the exam
    • Do not copy answers from notes such as those written on the body, clothing, pieces of paper, or electronic devices such as mobile phones and/or calculators
    • Do not get a copy of or information about an examination ahead of time
    • Do not look up answers in a book when the exam is specifically a closed book exam
    • Do not copy from someone else’s paper, project or assignment
    • Do not use notes or books during exams unless expressly allowed by the instructor
    • Do not hire a surrogate test taker
    • Do not bring forbidden materials such as calculators, computers, books, or notes into the exam unless expressly allowed by the instructor
    • Do not communicate with other students regarding the examination during the exam
    • Do not fail to submit your exam paper right after finishing the exam
    • Do not fail to switch off a mobile phone during the exam

    Rules to follow in submitting assignments, reports, term papers or projects

    • Do not submit any paper without references and in-text citation
    • Do not borrow all or part of another student’s paper or use someone else’s outline
    • Do not use the same paper for multiple classes
    • Do not buy projects and term papers

    • Do not lend any paper to other students to copy from without proper referencing & in-text citation
    • Do not work with anyone on an assignment, report or project when “working together” is not allowed

    Rules to follow in submitting information or citation in an academic exercise

    • Do not misreport results of an experiment or field research
    • Do not invent data and resources for written, oral, or other presentations
    • Do not invent case studies and relevant facts in reports, papers, or presentations

Learning Support Center

The Learning Support Center (LSC) provides academic support to Abu Dhabi University students outside the classroom. The center assists students through two main types of activities “Peer Assisted Learning” and Abu Dhabi University's “Learning Community"

Peer Assisted Learning offers students outside class academic mentoring and tutorials outside of the class. The assistance is provided by peers with advanced academic standing, under the guidance of the LSC coordinator.

Academic Mentoring -- The goal of academic mentoring is to link students in need of academic assistance with their peers to provide them with support, advice, and guidance. Students with a record of academic accomplishments serving as academic mentors can offer course related information, test-taking tips, effective study strategies, and encouragement to students wanting to improve their GPAs. The assistance of academic mentors allows students to reach higher levels of academic excellence and earn their degrees with a stronger academic foundation.

Academic Tutoring --Tutoring sessions are led by upper-level students with excellent academic records. Tutors are academic role models who have excellent skills in written and verbal communication. Tutors are recommended by faculty members based on their technical knowledge, study skills, and academic performance. One-on-one or small group tutoring can be offered in a variety of subjects on request.

Academic mentoring and academic tutoring as delivered through Peer Assisted Learning enhance academic performance, increase student satisfaction with campus life, improve student skills in “learning how to learn,” assist “students at risk,” and increase student retention. The overall objective of Peer Assisted Learning is to enable students to excel academically through the assistance of peers with teaching/learning.

Courses Covered by Peer Assisted Learning

The Peer Assisted Learning is available to students in need of academic assistance in the following areas:

  • University College courses
  • The first two most challenging “introductory courses” in various undergraduate degree programs, as selected by respective colleges
  • Other courses, based on the needs of students and the availability of resources.

 

Abu Dhabi University's Learning Community promotes cooperative teaching/learning, both in and outside the classroom. It increases active participation of students in their education, sharpens the skills in “learning how to learn,” develops shared-knowledge amongst student peers, and enhances the campus life of students. The objective of the Learning Community is to enable academic excellence by providing students with the opportunity to learn from each other, both inside and outside the classroom.

Courses Covered by the Learning Community>

At present, the Learning Community covers only the courses offered by the University College. As time progresses, the scope will widen to include other courses in different degree programs.

LSC Infrastructure -- the LSC enjoys state-of-the-art physical facilities and equipment such as suitable furnishing for group discussions, laptops, PCs, wireless Internet connection, etc. The LSC has a full-time coordinator who oversees LSC activities and daily operations on both campuses and coordinates with faculty members in selecting, training, and retaining mentors and tutors, scheduling tutoring and mentoring sessions, and assessing the LSC’s effectiveness.

Success of LSC -- Since its inception a year and half ago, over 1,000 students have been assisted on each of the campuses. Periodic surveys of students demonstrate the LSC’s success in improving academic performance of students and students’ satisfaction. Over the past several years, concerted efforts have been underway to further improve the effectiveness of the LSC through achieving the following operating goals:

  • Enabling online collaboration among students attending the LSC;
  • Expanding the scope of activities of the LSC;
  • Increasing operating hours; and
  • Attracting more student mentors and students tutors.
