Student Code of Conduct
The faculty members of the College of Allied Health Sciences (CAHS) have an academic, legal and ethical responsibility to protect the public and health care community from inappropriate professional conduct or unsafe behaviors in the practice of allied health professions. Students enrolled in the CAHS are expected to uphold at all times standards of integrity and behavior that will reflect credit upon themselves, their families, and East Carolina University (ECU). The faculty members of CAHS endorse the ECU Student Code of Conduct and Policies and recognize those policies and procedures as providing the appropriate government of student conduct. The ECU Student Code of Conduct and Policies can be found at http://www.ecu.edu/PRR/11/30/01
In addition, CAHS students may be provided with documents from their respective departments which express expectations regarding academic and professional conduct within all academic and clinical aspects of the curriculum during general advisement sessions, course work, clinical affiliations, and other instructional forums. All CAHS students are expected to be familiar with their department policies and professional codes of ethics and to conduct themselves in accordance with these standards.
Student inquiries and complaints regarding the implementation of the ECU Student Code of Conduct and Policies should initially be addressed at the departmental level. The faculty members of CAHS recognize that students may seek the assistance or counsel of the Office of the Dean of Students at any time.
Interim Policy for Handling Student Appeals related to Student Conduct Code Violations:
Violations of the ECU Student Conduct Code are first addressed at the departmental level. If resolution is not achieved, the student is referred to the office of the Dean of Student Services. That office will assist and guide students in the appeals processes.
