With students all over campus working on final exams, Texas Tech University was honored for its efforts in academic integrity. Texas Tech recently was selected as a winner of the 2014 Campus of Integrity Award by the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI).

Texas Tech will be honored during the awards luncheon banquet at the 2014 ICAI Annual Conference in March.

"Texas Tech is committed to developing ethical leaders for a diverse and globally competitive workforce," said Justin Louder, assistant vice provost for the Texas Tech Ethics Center. "Being recognized as a campus of integrity by the ICAI shows Texas Tech's commitment to ethical development. This is a great honor for our campus, our students, our faculty and our staff."

The ICAI was founded to combat cheating, plagiarism, and academic dishonesty in higher education. Its mission has since expanded to include the cultivation of cultures of integrity in academic communities throughout the world. ICAI offers assessment services, resources, and consultations to its member institutions, and facilitates conversations on academic integrity topics each year at its annual conference.

Aaron Monson, membership director for the ICAI, said the committee was impressed by Texas Tech's commitment to integrity in a variety of ways.

"It is especially heartening to see the work that Texas Tech has done incorporating academic integrity into the Red Raider Orientation Program, the success of Texas Tech's Honor Week and, of course, the work Texas Tech and the Texas Tech Ethics Center are doing to establish a regional consortium of ICAI," Monson said.
