International studies show improved efficacy of top-down approaches to academic integrity when supplemented with appropriate student driven counterparts, such as honour councils. We surveyed 5538 students across four Australian higher education institutions to gauge their level of interest for a possible student society devoted to academic integrity, and learn how they would like it to function. Despite much student scepticism towards its feasibility, more than quarter of those surveyed expressed willingness to be involved in such a society, and provided their opinion on its possible roles and activities.
