Cal Community Expectations

Cal is a community of scholars committed to maintaining an environment that encourages personal and intellectual growth. It is a privilege to be a part of the Cal community, and with this privilege comes the responsibility of acting within the standards of the community.

Members of the University community are expected to comply with all laws, University policies and campus regulations, and to conducting themselves in ways that support a scholarly environment. In this context, faculty are guided by The Faculty Code of Conduct, Section 015 of the Academic Personnel Manual, and students by the Berkeley Campus Code of Student Conduct.

University community members owe it to themselves and this community to report behaviors that violate the campus standards. In addition, each member is responsible for asking questions and seeking information in order to understand the expectations of our campus community.

We also encourage parents/families, neighbors, and community members to partner with us to promote the educational goals of our institution and our individuals.
