Student Conduct and Code of Ethics
Colleges, universities and learning institutions regularly employ codes of conduct and ethics. The codes are meant to set expectations for student conduct, the process of reporting ethics issues and how to address conduct violations. The code of conduct and ethics guidelines are important not just for the students but also to the institutions.
Violations of the student conduct and code of ethics are handled in varying ways. Many institutions have a formal student conduct process which handles violations. This process involves a fair investigation, adjudication, and impose penalties as needed. The need for legal counsel and advice may be needed.
