CCI Conduct Policy

The College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) expects students in the College to exhibit behavior that embodies integrity. The programs in this College must have heightened standards of conduct given that computing and informatics professionals will be given access to sensitive data and/or be taught how to access sensitive data.

Therefore, the College strictly adheres to the policies outlined by the University as it relates to Academic Integrity. Violations of the Academic Integrity policy include, but are not limited to: 1. Plagiarism, 2. Fabrication, 3. Cheating, and 4. Academic Misconduct, all outlined in Drexel University's Code of Conduct handbook. When a student or organization does not act responsibly and violates the University policies, rules, regulations, or standards of conduct, formal disciplinary action may result.

The College requires that students act with integrity outside of the classroom as well. Any conduct violations related to integrity that happen outside of the classroom and/or off campus will also be treated very seriously. Conduct violations include, but are not limited to: identity theft, a purposeful breach of any website or data system ("hacking"), tampering with confidential/sensitive data, and/or the unauthorized sharing of confidential/sensitive data.

Both Drexel University and the College also expect that every student abide by the laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Drexel subscribes to the view that, where practical, it shall deal with matters of student misconduct internally. However, where student misconduct implicates federal, state, or local laws, the appropriate law enforcement officials may be contacted.

NOTE: Lectures may be recorded and/or streamed and rebroadcast for educational purposes only.

As a result, you should consult the Blackboard Learn on a regular basis throughout your career at Drexel. They may be updated periodically.
