Student Discipline

Academic Misconduct
(Plagiarism; Cheating; Improper Research/Academic Practices; Impersonation; Falsification or Unauthorized Modification of an Academic Record; Aiding and Abetting Academic Misconduct)
In order to promote academic integrity, fairness and an atmosphere of collegiality at the University, this policy, as outlined in the Graduate Studies calendar sets out the principles and procedures governing academic misconduct committed by students. The intent of this policy is to ensure that students do not commit acts of academic misconduct.

Non-Academic Misconduct
为了交流complish its stated mission, the University must be a community in which there is freedom to learn, to teach, to create and to engage in research without fear of retaliation or intimidation and without threat to person or property. Students have a responsibility to act in a fair and reasonable manner in their interactions with their peers, faculty, staff and administration and in their use of campus property. The intent of this policy, as outlined in the Graduate Studies calendar is to encourage appropriate student conduct and to identify and regulate student non-academic misconduct which infringes on the above-mentioned freedoms and thereby jeopardizes the essential values of our academic community: mutual respect, dignity and civility.
