The Turnitin Global Innovation Awards recognize students, educators, administrators, and institutions worldwide with a passion for academic integrity. They champion the innovative and effective use of Turnitin to support student learning through curriculum initiatives, conversations, and campus-wide efforts. Our winners and honorable mentions this year reflect a global commitment to academic integrity, both at an institutional level and as they endeavour to support academic writing and research through practical and progressive means. Read their compelling stories below.

Our overall Global Innovator demonstrates a comprehensive dedication to the values of academic integrity and goes above and beyond to actively promote and inspire implementation of Turnitin in their institution and beyond. This Global Innovator nurtures and upholds integrity in our ever-changing education landscape and is a true ambassador for the use of Turnitin.

Congratulations to our Global Innovator!

There is a very big emphasis on ethics within the university... That is where I play a role, not only with Turnitin as a program but to be a champion for integrity and the way that it is grown within the university.
