Rollins requires that all material submitted by a student in fulfilling his or her academic course of study must be the original work of the student and must uphold academic integrity. Students are expected to engage in ethical conduct consistent with the field of public health or Emory
University. Students become familiar with the Honor and Conduct Code during their pre-Orientation Canvas module from Enrollment Services. Students are required to complete a Principles of Good Scholarship Survey and score a grade of 80% or higher to ensure they are familiar with the Honor and Conduct Code, Principles of Good Scholarship, and Citations. The Academic Resource Center offers a variety of resources to support student success.
Allegations of violations of the Honor and Conduct Code undergo a preliminary investigation by the Senior Associate Dean of Enrollment Management & Student Affairs or their appointee. The matter may be resolved at that point or referred to a formal Hearing Committee consisting of students and faculty members who make their recommendation to the Executive Associate Dean for Educational Affairs. Students may petition to appeal that decision, in which case a second Hearing Committee may be convened. Policies and procedures governing honor and conduct code violations are contained in this document.
In accordance with university bylaws, the president of the university has delegated to the dean and faculties of each school the responsibility of designing honor and conduct codes for its students. The Rollins Honor and Conduct Code was established to ensure personal responsibility and professional standards consistent with the field of public health and the missions of both Emory University and Rollins. In cases where the code has been alleged to be compromised, it sets forth a set of procedures to deal with the allegations. This code applies to any student registered in a Rollins course. Registered students are responsible for upholding all aspects of the code.
