The University Code of Student Conduct was created to ensure
the safety and security of the Rutgers community. This document is intended to
ensure students and organizations are aware of their rights and
responsibilities within the conduct process, and to uphold the integrity and
values of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. When students choose
to enroll at Rutgers University, they are encouraged to respect its values.
The Code of Student Conduct is more than a collection of
university regulations to be abided by--it seeks to promote the university's
values and educate. The Code of Student Conduct encourages students to be their
authentic selves as they find their place on campus, while also encouraging
students to embrace inclusion through discovery, dialogue, and development as
they celebrate diverse backgrounds.
The spirit of the Code of Student Conduct promotes student
engagement both on and off campus, global citizenship, and leadership. It
encourages students to uphold the highest tenets of trust, honesty, and
integrity, understanding at all times that our actions significantly impact our
personal journeys, our communities, and our larger society.
Rutgers-Camden, Rutgers-Newark, and Rutgers-New Brunswick students originate
from all corners of the world and travel between many campuses and cities. As
our students strive to achieve their goals, they are expected to conduct
themselves in accordance with university policies and procedures but more
importantly the values and spirit that they are founded upon.
