Academic Integrity Pets

Academic Integrity Pets working group was established on 1st April 2022.


Already in Aristotle’s school, noble cats were wandering among the antic columns or basking in the sun. They were watching the students carefully and gently waking them up if they tried to skive off.
In the Middle Ages, when young aristocrats were being educated by private tutors in their castles, their hounds pretended to sleep under the table but they were closely keeping an eye on the young masters and started barking if they attempted to cheat.

We, animals and pets have always been an important part of education, supporting pupils, students and teachers. We have been academic integrity watchdogs and role models (or maybe catwalk models). We were banished from modern campuses, but we persisted and took care of the pupils’ homeworks and oversaw students when they were studying for exams.
Finally, online education brought us again our well-deserved glory! Here we are, ready to stand for academic integrity!
