UC Davis Policy on Student Conduct & Discipline

The UC Davis Policy on Student Conduct & Discipline provides complete systemwide conduct policies for students as well as campus procedures for resolving alleged violations by students of university policies or campus regulations. It describes jurisdiction, informal and formal adjudication processes, hearing and appeal procedures, and sanctions.

UC Davis Code of Academic Conduct

Based on a long-standing tradition of honesty and integrity at the UC Davis campus, our Code of Academic Conduct is a modified honor code that places shared responsibility for upholding the academic integrity of our campus on students, faculty, and staff.  It replaces a student-run honor code that existed at UC Davis until 1976.

UC and UC Davis Policies on Sexual Harassment and Violence

Sexual harassment and sexual violence (including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and invasion of sexual privacy) are prohibited at the University of California. For information on the policies, reporting, and support services, contact the Harassment & Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program (HDAPP) at UC Davis. For information on the process and procedures for adjudicating cases of misconduct that violate the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment in which a student is the respondent to a complaint, see the UC Davis Adjudication of Student Cases of Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment.
