    I became a peer educator because I wanted to improve my speaking and mentoring skills. I realized that students in a highly stress environment like UC San Diego can be tempted to violate academic integrity. Therefore, I want to be part of the campus resource that promote and support academic integrity. Becoming a peer educator helped me to open up more because I am in an environment where opening up facilitates a lot of great discussions.

    The primary reason I became a peer educator was to provide guidance and assistance to students in need. I felt confident enough to not only promote and instill academic integrity across the campus, but do so in a warm, welcoming fashion. I have learnt so many valuable skills since becoming a peer educator, and continue to learn new, exciting things every week!

    Before the completion of AI Seminar, Academic Integrity was very vague to me. However, after I went through the process of how to deal with ethical dilemmas not only academically, but also life struggles. I realize this program will have a significant influence throughout my life. With my personal experience, I want to help and guide other students to realize the importance of integrity, like the Peer Educators who helped me. Being an Integrity Peer Educator will also enhance my skills and understandings on other ethical dilemmas.

    I became a peer educator because I want to strengthen my cooperative and communicative skills. Also, academic integrity means a lot to me. I had witnessed other students in my class cheating during exams when I was in high school. They got good grades by doing so and I think it’s unfair to the other students who didn’t cheat. I am looking forward to promoting academic integrity together with other peer educators and creating a good academic atmosphere on campus.

    This may sound funny, but I learned how to ask questions as a peer educator. One of my greatest weaknesses is that I am afraid of asking for help. I always thought I was expected to know all the answers. While being a peer educator, I have gained the courage to ask questions whenever I don't understand policy or know how to approach a situation.

    To be honest, I have experienced academic violation and got warned by the AI office. Then I attended the AI seminar as a sanction. This experience helped me to learn a lot about making good decisions and the meaning of being an honest person. I feel a lot of regret about getting involved in academic integrity violation, so I want to get involved in AI peer education to help more people to understand the meaning and methods of making honest decisions so that we can promote UCSD as an integrated community.

    I was first an undergrad panel member of the Academic Integrity Review Board. As getting more and more involved with the Academic Integrity Office, I started to wonder what it is like for students after the review meeting. As a result, I joined as a Peer Educator and have been helping students through advising hours and seminars. I am grateful that I had past experience in review process, in that way, I can explain the whole picture of panel review to students effectively. To me, integrity is not just about school work, but also is about core values that matter to us the most and how we uphold those values.
