The primary purpose of the Student Conduct Code is to establish community standards and procedures necessary to maintain and protect an environment conducive to learning, in keeping with the educational objectives of Oregon State University. The assumption upon which this code is based is that all persons must treat one another with dignity and respect in order for scholarship to thrive.
Students are expected to follow the academic and professional standards of the academic units. Choosing to join the Oregon State University community obligates each member to a code of responsible behavior. Individuals and student organizations are expected to observe the policies, rules, regulations and requirements of Oregon State University as well as laws of municipalities and counties, the State of Oregon, the United States of America and, when in another country, that country.
