Diverse and Casual People and Togetherness Concept

Academic Integrity Office (AIO)

We are a neutral party and information resource that seeks to promote a culture of integrity and educational excellence by informing, inspiring and educating the members of the Toronto Metropolitan University Community.

The Academic Integrity Office (AIO) exists to ensure that PDF filePolicy 60: Academic Integrity is carried out in a fair and transparent way and to provide educational resources to the university community regarding academic integrity and misconduct. The AIO provides guidance and support to students and decision makers and ensures that all parties are aware of their rights and responsibilities. The AIO is neutral with respect to all cases and is neither an advocate for students or faculty nor a decision-maker in the process.

Effective September 1, 2009, the Ryerson Senate approved the establishment of an Academic Integrity Council (AIC) consisting of both faculty and students which replaced the existing Faculty Appeals Committees and is administered through the Academic Integrity Office. The AIC's mandate is to promote and uphold academic integrity at Ryerson through both participating in educational activities and by holding hearings when it has been determined by faculty that students have engaged in academic misconduct.

Members of the Academic Integrity Council are committed to upholding the integrity of the learning process and of a Ryerson degree. For more information contact the Academic Integrity Office at
