School of Public Health Code of Professional Conduct and Honor Code
The Rutgers School of Public Health's Code of Professional Conduct and Honor Code sets forth general principles of integrity as well as expectations for behavior consistent with ethical study. All students who enroll with the Rutgers School of Public Health will be expected to abide by the Rutgers University Code of Student Conduct as well as the school's Code of Professional Conduct and Honor Code, throughout their course of study. Violations are a matter of grave concern and may be punishable with sanctions as severe as suspension or dismissal. The school's Code of Professional Conduct and Honor Code are companion policies to the Rutgers University policy titled "University Code of Student Conduct" and the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences policy titled "Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Disciplinary Procedures."
Code of Professional Conduct

Enrollment at the Rutgers School of Public Health is a privilege and not a right. All students enrolled in the school are expected to behave in a professional manner as they pursue their courses, certificates, and degrees. As an institution dedicated to improving the health of diverse populations, the school expects students to treat all people with respect, regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, military status, or marital status. The school reserves the right to require withdrawal of any student whenever necessary to maintain standards of scholarship or professional conduct.
Honor Code

Each student bears a fundamental responsibility for maintaining academic integrity and intellectual honesty in their graduate work. For example, all students are expected to observe the generally accepted principles of scholarly work, to submit their own rather than another's work, to refrain from falsifying data, and to refrain from receiving and/or giving aid on examinations or other assigned work requiring independent effort. In submitting written material, the writer takes full responsibility for the work as a whole and implies that, except as properly noted by use of quotation marks, footnotes, etc., both the ideas and the works used are his or her own. In addition to maintaining personal academic integrity, each student is expected to contribute to the academic integrity of the school community by not facilitating inappropriate use of her or his own work by others and by reporting acts of academic dishonesty by others to an appropriate school authority. It should be clearly understood that plagiarism, cheating, or other forms of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and can lead to sanctions up to and including separation from the Rutgers School of Public Health.
