Integrity Lunch & Learn Series 

The Integrity Lunch & Learn Series provides an opportunity for a small group of faculty and/or staff (about 24 in each session) to gather together to learn about strategies for creating classrooms and cultures of integrity. 

The Academic Integrity Office (AIO) and the Commons are partnering together to host the Lunch & Learn Series in W17 and SP17. At each of the three lunch & learns, we will broadcast an International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) webinar (partnering with Turnitin) and hold a discussion regarding how we can apply what we learned to the UC San Diego campus. Those who register by clicking on the links below will be provided with lunch.
