Bruin Safety & Well-Being / Policies Guiding Conduct

Policies Guiding Conduct

UCLA is built on the foundation of our mission and values — extending mutual respect, dignity, and care to all members of our community. Principles for enacting these values are established in our Codes of Conduct, helping to guide all Bruins in their everyday teaching, learning, and work at UCLA.

The below codes of conduct and other policy documents including the Principles Against Intolerance provide guidance for all members of the Bruin community around what is and is not acceptable at UCLA.

For example, one violation of the Student Code of Conduct (102.08) states: Conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person, including but not limited to, physical assault, threats that cause a person reasonably to be in sustained fear for one’s own safety or the safety of one’s immediate family, incidents involving the use or display of a weapon likely to cause great bodily harm, and intoxication or impairment through the use of alcohol or controlled substances to the point one is unable to exercise care for one’s own safety, or other conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person.

Unacceptable conduct noted under Faculty Conduct Policies include: 1) harassment against a student on political grounds or for reasons of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, gender identity, ethnic origin, national origin, ancestry, marital status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), genetic information (including family medical history), or service in the uniformed services, 2) use of the position or powers of a faculty member to coerce the judgment or conscience of a student or to cause harm to a student for arbitrary or personal reasons, 3) participating in or deliberately abetting disruption, interference, or intimidation in the classroom.
