Grand Canyon University takes a proactive approach to supporting faculty and students so that academic work is original. The Turnitin resource allows both students and instructors to check written work to make sure it is of the highest integrity when it comes to the originality of text. GCU sees Turnitin as a support tool to better assist students as they learn about proper citation and giving credit to others while the student crafts their own thoughts into written form. By checking the originality of text, students and instructors can work together to improve the student's work and limit the dangers of plagiarism.
All GCU faculty are encouraged to utilize the Turnitin tool as a preliminary resource before grading student papers.
