Academic Misconduct Procedures

In June 2023 the University Council approved new regulations for academic integrity, including new procedures in cases of suspected academic misconduct. The below resources have been developed with funding from the Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement to support academic staff in understanding the new process.

This page provides guidance and resources to support academic and professional colleagues with Trinity's policies and procedures relating to academic integrity.
