Integrity is not a component of ethics, integrity is much
The term “integrity” has its roots in French and Latin (14th century). Originally, the term was used meaning “innocence, blamelessness; chastity, purity” derived from Old French integrité or directly from Latin integritatem (nominative integritas) “soundness, wholeness, completeness”, figuratively “purity, correctness, blamelessness” from integer “whole”. The first known use in English is from the year 1450.
Integrity = forefront of our mission and operations
“We must work to ensure that we are putting truth – and integrity – at the forefront of our mission and operations. Academic and research integrity cannot be a side project or an afterthought. Integrity and ethics must be central to everything we do and every decision we make.”
