A global planning/advisory team co-led by Amanda McKenzie, University of Waterloo (CA) and Azalea Hulbert, University of West Virginia, US, consisting of the following members worked together over the past 8 months to coordinate plans to mark the IDoA:


  • Stephen Bunbury, University of Westminster, UK
  • Mary Davis, Oxford Brookes University, UK
  • Lucía del Carmen Córdova Rivera, University of Monterrey, MX
  • Irene Glendinning, Coventry University, UK
  • Luz Herlinda Godina Silva, University of Monterrey, MX
  • Zeenath Khan, University of Wollongong Dubai, AE
  • Thomas Lancaster, Imperial College London, UK 
  • Jennie Miron, Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, CA
  • Evangeline Litsa Mourelatos, Deree, the American College of Greece (retired), GR

Two sub-groups were created: one for Faculty (co-led by Mary Davis & Irene Glendinning) and one for Students (co-led by Stephen Bunbury & Jennie Miron). There was strong participation in both of these groups. In fact, many volunteers expressed interest in continuing to be involved after the IDoA. Special mention goes to University of Dundee student, Louise Warburton, for her tremendous efforts to adapt an academic integrity escape room to the IDoA, and to demonstrate this game on October 19th. Her enthusiasm for the escape room and work in academic integrity was infectious! 

In total, six web events took place. Two pre-events were held on Oct 5th, and four web events took place at various times on Oct 19th. A full list of contributors as well as links to the videos of these events can be found here.

A diverse and impressive representation of countries from around the world (e.g.,Oman, Egypt, UAE, Uzbekistan, Nigeria, Brazil, Greece, Ukraine, Romania etc.) registered to show their support for the IDoA. 

A student TikTok contest was held to help build awareness of the day and the importance of academic integrity. There were over 25 submissions and some TikToks had an astounding 50,000+ views! Shout out to Mississippi State University (@msstate #Mississippistate) who took this competition to heart and had the majority of contest submissions. Contest winners will be announced by November 2, 2022. Stay tuned!!! 

The planning/advisory group will meet to debrief and discuss plans for 2023, which includes a name change. Contract Cheating will be removed and an emphasis on integrity and ethics will be adopted. Volunteers are always welcome to join this work for 2023, just reach out to
