Faculty of Arts and Science Statement on Student Disciplineand Science Statement on Student Discipline

New York University is a community of scholars who value free and open inquiry.  Our work depends on honest assessment of ideas and their sources; and we expect all members of our community to maintain the highest integrity in their academic work.  As scholars committed to the critical evaluation of ideas, free of personal prejudice, we also have an obligation to one other to create an educational atmosphere of mutual trust and respect in which differences of opinion can be subjected to deliberate and reasonable examination without animus.  Because of the central importance of these values to our intellectual life together, students who fail to maintain them will be subject to disciplinary sanction, which may include dismissal from the University.

Disciplinary offenses include but are not limited to:

  • cheating, plagiarism, falsification of data or sources, forgery of academic documents in attempt to defraud;
  • destruction, theft, or unauthorized use of laboratory data, library or research materials, computer resources, or university property;
  • disruption of academic events or interference with access to classrooms, laboratories, or academic offices;
  • actual or threatened violence against, or assault or harassment of a student, instructor, staff member, or administrator.

The following penalties may be imposed by the faculty for disciplinary infractions:

  • Warning
  • Disciplinary Probation
  • Suspension
  • Dismissal
