Graduate Studies Calendar 2011-2012 Academic Regulations Q. Non-Academic Misconduct Policy
Q. Non-Academic Misconduct Policy

1. The goal of this policy is to provide a clear and transparent process for managing and addressing non-academic misconduct and to do so in a manner that is centralized and follows the principles of natural justice.

The primary objective is to ensure that appropriate Student behaviour is maintained in a diverse educational environment.


2. The Policy applies to unacceptable conduct of any Student (all undergraduate and graduate students as well as postgraduate students in the Faculty of Medicine) while on the University of Calgary premises or when acting as a Representative of the University at off-campus venues and events. This Policy also applies to University of Calgary Students studying on exchange at other campuses, or attending a satellite location of the University (e.g. Downtown Campus).

In addition, the University reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action to protect the safety and security of the campus community, including taking necessary and appropriate action in cases when a Student is accused of serious conduct, and there is a clear connection to the University of Calgary regardless of where the conduct occurred or is alleged to have occurred.

Students are expected to be individually responsible for their conduct. Any Student found responsible for violations of the Policy will be subject to disciplinary actions as outlined in the Policy, regardless of how the incident is dealt with by other policies or law(s).
