Academic integrity is the foundation of education as it ensures the quality of the education and degree awarded, the knowledge and skills taught. It provides transparency, acceptability and trust in the values instilled in graduates who represent the future contributors, decision makers, entrepreneurs, policy makers and world leaders of society.
The Centre for Academic Integrity in the UAE (CAIU) represents a group of academics based in the UAE, who have come together to work independently and voluntarily for the benefit of the greater community. CAIU achieves this by hosting awareness campaigns, conducting research and providing access to locally and internationally developed research tools for teachers and administrators on academic integrity.
CAIU works closely with international bodies, such as International Centre for Academic Integrity and European Network for Academic Integrity; and is recognised as a partner working in the field of ethics with ETICO (an International Institute for Education Planning (IIEP)-UNESCO web-based resource platform targeting the issue of ethics and corruption in education).
CAIU’s Student Board Rationale
CAIU recognises the important role students play in building a culture of integrity. Students are central to any activity, campaign or dialogue that is about academic integrity. CAIU values student voices, opinions and perseveres to be student-centric in its approach upholding values of academic integrity.
CAIU’s Student Board Members
CAIU’s Student Board (SB) is a sub-committee that reports directly to the Founding Board Members (FBM).
SB members are expected to be currently enrolled students at a school or university in the UAE with valid student ID.
SB’s purpose is to work as a cohesive group of think tanks from student perspective, conceptualize and support campaigns in their own campuses of CAIU events, campaigns and research work.
