Stanford University's Code of Conduct

As a member of the Stanford University community, each of us is responsible for maintaining the highest ethical standards and performing activities with the utmost integrity and fairness.

The Stanford Code of Conduct is our guide for ethical, professional, and legal standards of behavior. Central to this code is the principle of treating others with respect, integrity, honesty, and fairness. As a community, we strive to integrate these values into teaching, research, and business practices. We are individually and collectively accountable for our behavior. Violations of this code will result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
