20528 ICAI 2022 30th Anniversary Conference Logo R8 1

The International Center for Academic Integrity is celebrating 30 years of advancing academic integrity in 2022. ICAI is a leader in advancing academic integrity across the globe by providing member institutions with resources to promote academic integrity. These new and updated resources below are designed to help schools, colleges, universities, individuals, and governments build a culture of academic integrity. This anniversary is also a good time to share ICAI's history. "It Takes a Village": The Origins of the International Center for Academic Integrity (1992-2010) tells how for the last 30 years, ICAI has been a leader in the international academic integrity movement. Other organizations have sprung up around the world in its likeness, but it continues to be a guiding light for research and practice. So, how did it all begin? This story explores the founding and early years of the Center through the words and memories of 14 founders and early leaders including Don McCabe, the "grandfather of academic integrity."
