Know the Codes: The Guide to Your Rights & Responsibilities at GW

As a GW student, it’s important to know what GW expects of you and what you can expect from GW. The Code of Academic Integrity and the Code of Student Conduct provide some of the expectations for GW students’ behavior in class, outside of class, off-campus, and online. Guides on our website provide an overview of the Codes of Student Conduct and of Academic Integrity. We encourage students to read the Codes in their entirety. In the event any guidance on this website is inconsistent or in conflict with those Codes, the appropriate Code will apply. 


Serve on the University Integrity and Conduct Council

Members of the University Integrity and Conduct Council review reports of academic and non-academic misconduct by students and student organizations. Cases may include cheating, community disturbance, discrimination, non-compliance, physical abuse, plagiarism among others. Members gain experience working in a collaborative decision-making setting.

Interested in policy change? Join the Code Review Committee

Each year, Student Rights and Responsibilities takes a close look at the Code of Student Conduct, and suggests revisions that are presented to the Board of Trustees. This process is intended to be community-driven with students, staff, and faculty given different opportunities to take part in this work.

Provide feedback on the code of student conduct

Alternatively, students, faculty and staff can submit feedback about the Code of Student Conduct and other docuements through an online form, individual conversations, and listening/feedback sessions with constituent groups around the university.
