Academic dishonesty is prevalent across college campuses worldwide, with many students having committed the offence at some point of their academic pursuit. This paper addresses the growing concern in academia regarding the diminishing sense of academic integrity and ethical values among students. This paper is based on secondary data and most of the findings are collected through online sources.. We cannot deny the fact, that it is the loss of ethical values, and their prime pursuit becomes to apply shortcuts in completing their accomplishments which we feel is one of the obstacles in academic proficiency. This paper also suggests the ways to curb academic dishonesty and the role of teachers to minimize the content theft which is quiet common among students.
