University of the People partners with Unicheck on Zero-Tolerance for Plagiarism Policy

Unicheck’s unique plagiarism detection software will scan every paper submitted by UoPeople students to automatically look for any copied work. This innovative tool will be functional as of today, the first day of Term 2 for UoPeople.  

“The University of the People prides itself on providing the highest quality of education,” said Shai Reshef, President of UoPeople. “Unicheck’s great plagiarism tool adds to the quality of the education and assessment we can provide. We are very grateful for Unicheck’s donation of this software. It is one more step we are taking to further enhance our offerings and ensure that students everywhere have access to a high quality, tuition-free education.”
