FPI becomes a member of The International Centre for Academic Integrity
The Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI) is proud to announce the new affiliation with the International Centre for Academic Integrity (ICAI). The ICAI was founded to combat cheating, plagiarism, and academic dishonesty in higher education. Its mission has since expanded to include a culture of integrity in academic communities throughout the world.
The ICAI offers assessment services, resources, and consultations to its member institutions, and facilitates conversations on academic integrity topics each year at its annual conference.
In order to meet the continually evolving needs of membership in future years, ICAI will encourage, support, and share research that predicts, describes, and responds to trends and issues relating to academic integrity standards and practices with the FPI.
“The strength of this organization has always been the commitment of its members to the idea that integrity is truly central to the educational enterprise. Members like the FPI made great strides in improving the ethical climate of their own institutions and brought issues of integrity to the attention of the larger public. On behalf of the ICAI staff, we welcome FPI to the International Centre for Academic Integrity,” says Aaron Monson from ICAI.
Godfrey Nti, CEO for the FPI says, “We are very proud to have been admitted into membership of this important and noble institute, an institute with a strong international outreach. By joining ICAI, we are committing to further strengthening FPI’s certification standards by integrating into it the highest principles and guidelines of academic integrity espoused by ICAI. This will not only demonstrate FPI’s commitment to raising the status of the financial planning profession but will also give FPI an important platform to join our peers around the world in networking, learning and sharing our own experiences gathered over the last 31 years of our existence.”
