Student Conduct

A friendly reminder during the COVID-19 virtual learning environment

Hello Toro Students!

As University support services and classes have moved to alternative and virtual delivery, the Office of Community Standards wants to remind all CSUDH students of your responsibility to maintain and uphold our campus community values as stated in the Student Conduct Code Title 5, Article 2, Section 41301:

The University is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy living and learning environment for students, faculty, and staff. Each member of the campus community should choose behaviors that contribute toward this end. Students are expected to be good citizens and to engage in responsible behaviors that reflect well upon their university, to be civil to one another and to others in the campus community, and contribute positively to student and university life.

Although you may not have on-campus interaction with faculty, staff, and other students during this time, in our virtual community you are still expected to engage in a respectful manner that promotes high regards to academic integrity, professionalism and overall good citizenship.  Even in this remote state of operating, if the Student Code of Conduct is violated in any way, The Office of Community Standards will address accordingly as outlined in Executive Order 1098.

Thank you for doing your part in upholding the University’s student standards as we all navigate this new virtual learning environment for the remainder of the semester.  

If you have any questions in regards to the information that was presented in this email, please feel free to contact Dr. Zack Ritter, Interim Associate Dean of Students, at zritter@csudh.edu or Dr. Jamie Purnell, Associate Director of Community Standards, at jpurnell@csudh.edu

Know Your Rights – And Responsibilities

CSUDH seeks to create the optimum climate for academic excellence for both students and faculty. Within this climate, students must have the opportunity to develop an understanding of their roles as citizens in a democracy. In order to achieve these goals, the university strives to minimize its regulatory controls over individual student conduct and to maximize the opportunity for student self-control and self-discipline.

The policies and procedures which apply to students at the CSUDH can be found in the section menu or through the links below.
