Academic Integrity: Academic Integrity

A guide to help you understand academic integrity and how to avoid plagiarism

Plagiarism

What does it mean to Plagiarize?

Plagiarize: to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own: use (another's production) without crediting the source or to commit literary theft: present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

Canisius does not tolerate plagiarism.  Plagiarism is an act of fraud and is a serious offense. Please review the Canisius College Code of Academic Integrity.  Plagiariasm is described in Section II.B.1 (Plagiarism).
