University of Chicago Policies

Policies that pertain specifically to Biological Sciences Division graduate students are listed elsewhere in this section.  

The University of Chicago is a community of scholars dedicated to research, academic excellence, and the pursuit and cultivation of learning.  Every member of the university – student, faculty, and staff – makes a commitment to strive for personal and academic integrity; to treat others with dignity and respect; to honor the rights and property of others; to take responsibility for individual and group behavior; and to act as a responsible citizen in a free academic community and in the larger society. Any student conduct, on or off campus, of individuals or groups, that threatens or violates this commitment may become a matter for action within the university’s system of student discipline.
