In recognition that academic integrity is the foundational value of all teaching, learning, and research efforts, the University at Buffalo seeks to recognize those individuals who help to elevate this important value at our institution. While all members of our UB community are expected to uphold integrity standards, this recognition is reserved for those who set an example for others in their commitment to integrity.
At the conclusion of each spring semester, in conjunction with National Honesty Day on April 30, the Office of Academic Integrity will recognize individuals or groups who have gone above and beyond their duty to promote and enhance our culture of integrity at UB during the past academic year.
A committee with representation from faculty, students, the Office of Academic Integrity, the Graduate School, Undergraduate Education and the Faculty Senate, will select winners.
Any member or unit of the UB community is eligible and may be nominated (or self-nominated) for this recognition. Nominations will be accepted in the following categories:
Nominees will be accepted in any category, but all categories might not be recognized every year.
Nominations can be submitted anytime throughout the academic year. The nomination deadline for the 2023-24 awards is March 15, 2024. Nominations received after March 15 will be considered for the following year’s award process. An awards ceremony will be held each year to honor the winners.
