In spring 2011, the Academic Integrity Council and the Kenan Institute for Ethics surveyed 2,000 Duke undergraduates about integrity inside and outside the classroom and conducted in-depth interviews with graduating seniors. The survey and interviews document marked reductions in academic dishonesty; significant gaps between the large numbers of students perceived to be cheating vs. the smaller number of students self-reporting cheating; and rising numbers of students reporting inappropriate collaboration. The survey and interviews also explored the relationships among integrity in different domains (academic, social, work, and civic) and raised key questions about how a Duke education can and should affect multiple dimensions of a student’s sense of integrity.
