Student Conduct

All students sign a SPH Code of Conduct pledging to behave in accordance with the academic and professional behavioral expectations of the School of Public Health.

Academic misconduct includes plagiarism, cheating, fabrication of documents, academic theft or forgery, resubmission of work, bribery, and facilitating academic misconduct on behalf of another.

The policy for students’ rights and responsibilities in cases of professional misconduct, as well as procedures for addressing complaints and possible disciplinary actions are detailed in Chancellors Memorandum 56.

Additional details about procedures related to academic and professional misconduct are found in the School of Public Health Student Handbook. The Student Handbook describes the protocol for dealing with charges of misconduct. It also includes a list of repercussions that may result with the finding of misconduct and details the manner in which appeals may be sought. Student dismissal for misconduct follows the procedures in CM-56.
