Working Group for Students

Background

Students are central to the conversation on academic integrity and it is important that they have a safe and supportive platform to voice their opinions, share their thoughts and take the lead in actions and activities that impact them.

At the last ENAI AGM, members discussed the need to encourage and include students and increase student involvement in academic integrity. The AGM members announced the formation of the Working Group for Students to be led by students.

Aim

To promote academic integrity in an international context from students` perspective by providing a forum for students to communicate with each other and with the greater ENAI membership.

The purpose of the working group is:

  1. Integrate students and student bodies in ENAI activities
  2. Support student community with academic integrity tools and resources
