Student Code of Conduct

Health Studies Student Code of Conduct

The University of Washington Bothell and the School of Nursing and Health Studies (SNHS) requires that students will conduct themselves as responsible members of the University and SNHS community. As a condition of enrollment, all students assume responsibility to observe standards of conduct that will contribute to the pursuit of academic goals and to the welfare of the University and SNHS community. These responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  1. Communicate respectfully with others.
  2. Respect the rights, dignity, privacy, and worth of others and adapt strategies that allow for divergent perspectives or attitudes, opinions, and/or cultural values that differ from your own. 
  3. Uphold ethical behavior and conduct and promote integrity and transparency among your peers, within the school, and when engaging with community partners.
  4. Support a positive, safe learning environment free from harassment and all forms of discrimination. 
  5. Practice academic and professional honesty and integrity.
  6. Refrain from conduct that would violate the rights, privileges, and property of others; do not intimidate, coerce, or use manipulative tactics. 
  7. Do not negatively disrupt the physical or virtual learning environment or university operations.
  8. Give credit and appropriate recognition to others for their professional contributions, achievements, and scholarship and credit yourself for only work you have performed/completed. 
  9. Comply with the rules, regulations, procedures, policies, standards of conduct, and orders of the University as outlined in the UW Student Code of Conduct.

These above standards of conduct do not replace but further support the University of Washington’s Student Code of Conduct.

Under WAC 478-121-020, the conduct code applies to all students from the time of admission through the conferral of a degree, including any period between terms of enrollment.

The disciplinary sanctions specified in WAC 478-121-210, up to and including suspension or dismissal, may be imposed on any student or student organization found responsible for prohibited conduct set forth in WAC 478-121-100 through 478-121-173 and as described in relevant University policies.
