Academic Integrity Working Group

Main content start

The AIWG is charged with addressing a variety of issues related to academic integrity at Stanford University.  It aims to study and understand the causes of academic dishonesty in contemporary settings and to assess the interplay of academic integrity and pedagogical practices both here and elsewhere.  It will ultimately recommend policies and other measures to address these issues.

Student Affairs & The AIWG

Student Affairs does not unilaterally direct or control the Academic Integrity Working Group (AIWG) or its processes. Instead, Student Affairs' role is to offer resources for project management and to facilitate the procurement of an unbiased external consulting group to support the proctoring pilot. Student Affairs maintains a neutral & objective position and does not attempt to influence AIWG operations.
