In addition to paraphrasing the passage, explain in one paragraph the strategy you used to paraphrase effectively.

“As an institution fundamentally concerned with the free exchange of ideas, the university depends on the academic integrity of each of its members. In the spirit of this free exchange, students and instructors of Walden recognize the necessity and accept the responsibility for academic integrity. A student who enrolls at the university thereby agrees to respect and acknowledge the research and ideas of others in his or her work and to abide by those regulations governing work stipulated by the academic unit or academic program, and, in turn, the instructor” (Walden University, 2016. para. 8).

Source passage:

“The problem of plagiarism and piracy in the Asian context does not necessarily have its origin in a lack of academic integrity. Japan has strong rules for proper behaviour in nearly every field of life and work, including at schools and universities. Copyright violations have severe consequences in fields which matter. The intellectual property divisions of universities have strict regulations concerning the announcement and use of intellectual property rights. Cheating in the Japanese university system, whether committed by students or professors, is rigidly condemned. Copying from other students during exams is regarded as a crime. In Japan, ironically students who are sharing and reproducing a common educational compendium insist to take their ‘own’ entrance exam. Personal competition seems to force them to accept the rules. If they once have succeeded to enter the university they are embedded in collective structures and collaboration is requested as it is in school and work life. The situation in China is not much different. Competition in both countries matters at most in a later stage of academic research particularly when recognition outside small academic circles becomes crucial. Then, a more competitive climate requires better proofs of individual performance from the researchers. But these adopted values are only a current in the mainstream of an old tradition in which it is not the individual, but the community, that is important” (Balve, 2014, p. 88
