Our Guest(s) This Week
Teddi Fishman directs the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), a consortium of approximately 250 colleges, universities, and schools with more than 1000 individual members around the world. She has spoken on academic integrity topics in the U.S., the U.K., Israel, Egypt, South Africa, and Australia, promoting educational rather than punitive approaches to academic integrity. Fishman advocates for the development of cultures of integrity and for the cultivation of students’ ethical decision-making capacities. Her interest in ethics and integrity dates back to her pre-academic career as a police officer that inspired her master's thesis which she earned from Clemson University before completing her doctoral degree at Purdue. She believes that education, integrity, and interaction are key to building a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world.
