Ethics and Conduct

Student Professional Expectations

The College of Education supports the mission goals and values of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) and the University of South Florida by promoting a community that values individual responsibility and the adherence to community standards as embodied in the Student Code of Conduct.

USF Code of Conduct

The University of South Florida values a community based on the principles of community, ethics, and civility. As such, the USF community expects students to behave in a manner that supports this purpose. Read the Student Code of Conduct document to understand what behavior is counteractive to this purpose and how USF will hold students accountable for those inappropriate behaviors.

The USF Ethics and Integrity Council serves in an advisory capacity to the President of the University, as well as to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Vice President for Student Affairs on policies, procedures and practices affecting students' academic integrity, ethical development, and respect for the global community at the University of South Florida.
