Dr. Gregory Campbell, College of Social and Behavioral Science: I served as a federal agent for 27 years, and in law enforcement there is definitely integrity. Officers, federal agents doing what they know is right, again, even when no one else is watching. Also, in their profession, doing what they know is right when no one else is watching. In academic integrity, it's, it's definitely very similar. A student has to avoid plagiarism. Writing about someone else's work without giving them credit, again, both of those things overlap—whether you're in your profession or it's academic integrity, it's just being honest. It's honoring yourself, having self-accountability, and honoring the university or honoring your profession at the same time. So yes, there are similarities between the two.
