Professional Conduct

College of Health Sciences

Students are expected to emulate the legal, moral, and ethical standards expected of professionals in their respective areas and display behavior that is consistent with these qualities. A Code of Responsibilities and Rights of the Students of Midwestern University is included in Appendix 1 of the MWU Student Handbook. This code clearly states the mode of behavior that is expected of students and covers both on-campus and off-campus activities. Students are expected to read and follow this code.

Unsatisfactory professional behavior, as defined in Appendices 2 and 4 of the MWU Student Handbook, is subject to disciplinary sanctions that may preclude a student's academic progress in their program of study. The Dean of Students investigates formal complaints concerning student misconduct and recommends disciplinary action to the CHS Dean. A student who is found to have engaged in improper conduct is subject to disciplinary action which includes, but is not limited to, disciplinary warning, disciplinary probation, disciplinary suspension, or disciplinary dismissal. Disciplinary warning and disciplinary probation are not noted on the transcript but are kept in the student's disciplinary file. Disciplinary suspension and disciplinary dismissal are noted on the student's transcript. Disciplinary information may be shared with clinical sites that are affiliated with Midwestern University educational programs.
