Intended for new international graduate students.

Imbedded in this course is GSR 960.0 Introduction to Ethics and Integrity. Facilitated delivery and subsequent tutorials focus on the practical application of academic honesty, the role of graduate students, supervisors and graduate chairs, and the expectations of a Canadian academic culture.
