Student Code of Conduct – Purpose


The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is to define the responsibility of all Georgian College and University Partnership Centre students to act in a manner that respects the rights, safety and wellbeing of others. The Code defines the general standard of conduct expected of students, provides examples of non-academic conduct that may be subject to disciplinary action by the College, sets out the disciplinary sanctions that may be imposed, and describes the disciplinary procedures that the college will follow. Academic misconduct is addressed through the academic misconduct procedure within the Academic Policies and Procedures.

Every effort should be made to address minor misconduct informally. The intent of the Code is to provide a framework to resolve issues when civility and respect for the rights of others break down and informal resolution is not possible. These principles and values can only be realized in an atmosphere of respect, safety and security. In exercising its authority under this Code of Conduct, the College and those acting on behalf of the College will ensure that they apply the principles of natural justice and fairness, act in good faith and apply their discretion reasonably.

In the context of this Code, the goal and responsibility of Georgian is to provide a learning community encompassing all aspects of college life, such that the pursuit of education and personal growth can take place in a safe and welcoming environment. Identifying quickly and responding effectively to instances of non-academic misconduct is vital to maintaining a respectful and inclusive learning environment. The Code includes coverage of incidents that occur both on and off campus, which affect the Georgian workplace, living and study environment.
