UBC Vancouver to introduce non-academic code of conduct

January 16, 2012

As of this month, the University of British Columbia's Vancouver campus will implement a new, detailed non-academic misconduct policy based on what the institution has deemed a successful model at the Okanagan campus. Students involved in a punishable activity will deal directly with a representative from the VP Students Office. At this stage students may accept responsibility for their actions and help decide what they should do to make amends. For more severe cases, UBC will establish a President's Non-Academic Misconduct Committee composed of students and a committee chair that will undertake an investigative process. The new policy is slated to be fully integrated by September 2012. The Ubyssey (student newspaper)
