INTEGRITY
The Second Online
Integrity Forum
What is it
Integrity Project hosts the Second Online Integrity Forum on June 1, 2022. We will explore Kazakhstani and international academic integrity experiences at universities, the integrity challenges we face on a daily basis, best practices for turning challenges into opportunities, and new approaches to student leadership in this context. A feature of the Forum and Integrity Project is the primary role of student voices.

The Forum’s Program will also emphasise the role of integrity beyond graduation for successful and fulfilled careers. We will do it through workshops and information sessions to develop integrity awareness, critical thinking and public speaking skills.

The Forum continues a series of Integrity Project’s regular events and activities and will be essential for students and professionals who aim to develop a network of scholars-professionals-university and high school students with a common interest in academic and professional integrity and leading change.
