Student Conduct

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the University's function as an educational institution. This implies respect for persons and property and adherence to rules of good conduct and courtesy in all campus facilities. The Academic Senate, the Associated Students of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate Student Association have established standards for academic integrity. A Faculty Committee on Student Conduct and Discipline is responsible for implementing those standards, as well as standards of good conduct. Instructors with the approval of the Dean of the Ziegler School, Associate Dean or Assistant Dean, as well as the University’s Dean of Students may exclude from class any student guilty of unbecoming conduct or any student who, in their judgment, fails to treat the obligations of the course with the proper seriousness. In such cases, a grade of F or W will be recorded, depending upon the circumstances. Depending on the nature of the case, students may appeal all such decisions to the Office of the Dean of Students or to the Dean of the Ziegler School.

Rabbis and rabbinical students are models for the community. Use of illegal drugs is not commensurate with their responsibilities to the community and will therefore result in expulsion from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.
