In order to ensure the continuance and enhancement of the positive image and reputation of all members of the College community and in the interest of promoting student and faculty welfare at the College and the safety and security of our entire College community, the following Code of Behavior is in effect:
Gambling and the sale possession of drugs, including marijuana, are illegal by New York State law. Violators will be subject to disciplinary action and/or referral to outside authorities.
Any student who does not show his or her ID card upon a legitimate request will be considered a trespasser.
Alcoholic beverages are not permitted at any College (department or program) event to which students are invited or expected to participate.
Any form of cheating is prohibited.
Any student violating the code of behavior or any law or regulation established by the College, and by the city, state or federal government (including the use of drugs) shall be subject to formal disciplinary procedures as outlined in Articles 15.3 to 15.5 of the Board of Higher Education Bylaws and sanctions as listed in the Board of Higher Education Bylaws and Article 129A of the Education Low. The initiation of disciplinary procedures requires a predisciplinary hearing before a counselor from the Office of the Dean of Students as set up in line with the requirements of the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees immediately following an incident which is judged to be an infraction of law or Behavior Code to determine whether or not the case should be referred to the Student-Faculty Discipline Committee. As a result of emergency or extraordinary circumstances, a student may be suspended for a period not to exceed seven (7) schools days. A hearing must be held within that same time period unless the student agrees or consents to an extension of the time.
If the charges are of sufficient nature and have not been settled at the predisciplinary hearing, a formal hearing will be scheduled before the Faculty-Student Discipline Committee as specifically outlined in Article 15.3 of the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees.
Students as a result of this hearing or failure to appear at the hearing may be subject to immediate and permanent suspension which may apply to all units of The City University of New York. All students involved will be advised of the various levels of appeal under the Bylaws of the Board of Education.
