Code of Conduct


PA program Code of Conduct

In addition to the PA Program Code of Conduct, all CWRU PA students are required to uphold the University Code of Conduct, School of Medicine Professional Code of Conduct, and all of its proscribed conduct.  The University Student Code of Conduct shall apply to conduct that occurs on university premises, at university sponsored activities and to off-campus conduct that adversely affects the university community, the mission of the university and/or the pursuit of university goals.

Each student shall be responsible for his/her conduct from the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, including periods immediately before classes begin or immediately after classes end, as well as during the academic year and during periods between terms of actual enrollment. This includes conduct which occurred while a student was enrolled discovered even after a degree is awarded. The Student Code of Conduct shall apply to a student even if the student withdraws from the university while a disciplinary matter is pending. The Vice President of Student Affairs or designee shall decide when the Student Code of Conduct may be applied to incidents of misconduct occurring off campus, on a case by case basis

The University Student Code of Conduct serves to support the overall mission and core values of Case Western Reserve University. This includes civility and the free exchange of ideas, civic and international engagement, appreciation for the distinct perspectives and talents of each individual, academic freedom and responsibility, and ethical behavior.
