Meme your integrity!

Academic Integrity is a fundamentally important concept for academia. And what better way to encourage academic integrity than through memes! Add your voice to why academic integrity is important by creating a unique meme related to academic integrity for a chance to win one of six prizes. 

The meme could show why academic integrity is important, why students should follow the College’s Academic Integrity Policy, or how academic integrity relates to your future career. But most of all your meme should be fun, creative, and inspiring!
