USF Code of Conduct
The University of South Florida System (USF System) values a community based on the principles of community, ethics, and civility. As such, the USF System 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 the USF System 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.
