New Code of Conduct for the University

The University of Divinity has a new Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct applies to all members of the University when on University or College premises, using University or College facilities and services, or engaging in University or College activities related to their duties and responsibilities as a member of the University. There are six commitments in the Code of Conduct.

Speaking today, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Sherlock said,

The Code of Conduct is a positive expression of the University’s mission and values and helps each of us to understand our obligations and responsibilities.”

With its accompanying policies, the Code aims to give clear information about what is expected or required of members of the University and its Colleges.

The new Code of Conduct is available on the University website and on ARK. A short video of the Vice-Chancellor introducing the Code is also available.

The University’s Code of Conduct is supported by five policies. It is helpful to get to know these policies, in particular the Academic Integrity Policy, the Conduct and Misconduct Policy, and the Safeguarding Policy. The other two are the Appeals Policy and the Complaints Policy. Summary information about the Appeals and Complaints processes is available online.
