Non-academic policies

Non-Academic Misconduct Policy

As a community, OCAD University is dedicated to ensuring an environment conducive to effective teaching, learning and artistic creativity. As a consequence, OCAD U affirms the dignity, worth and autonomy of all its members. Any action by any member of the University community which is not consistent with these principles is unacceptable.

The Non-Academic Misconduct Policy is meant to guide students regarding behaviour that is appropriate in the university community, and to outline the procedures to be followed in the event of alleged inappropriate behaviour. It is intended by OCAD U that this Non-Academic Misconduct Policy be understood and applied in a policy framework designed to ensure that students participate fully in the opportunities afforded to them by virtue of their membership in the university community.
