The literature and practice of academic integrity consistently affirm that the ways to achieve meaningful educational experiences align with the most effective strategies to ensure the integrity of teaching and learning. Understanding the perceptions and beliefs that faculty and staff hold around academic integrity - and the related behaviors and actions - is essential for institutional efforts to infuse an emphasis on integrity across the curriculum and to develop academic integrity policies and processes that emphasize student success. This paper presents a qualitative content analysis of faculty and staff perceptions and beliefs about academic integrity as part of a comprehensive initiative at Access University to define an institutional vision and a set of strategies to enhance and maintain a culture of academic integrity.
