Codes of Conduct

  • Upon entering the CACP program, it is expected that students will conduct themselves in a professional manner both in and outside of the classroom.

    • Students are expected to work hard, read assigned material, and actively participate in class discussions.
    • Regular and active participation in class for the entire duration of the course is expected. 
    • While it is okay and sometimes a necessary part of the learning process to disagree with the professor and/or another student, verbal or physical attacks will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from not only the course but the CACP program.
    • Academic dishonesty (e.g., working on individual assignments with others, cheating on an exam, not representing yourself accurately) and plagiarism (i.e., turning in another’s writing as your own, failing to cite sources in your writing) is unacceptable and unethical. Students found to be engaging in academic dishonesty will be removed from the CACP program.
    • Students are expected to be professional when in the community when they are working with a criminal justice agency in a university capacity.
