The Worcester Polytechnic Institute Student Judicial Policies and Procedures has been published to document WPI policies and the code of conduct that all WPI students are expected to observe. In addition, the Policies and Procedures identify the process by which a member of the WPI community may be held accountable and the sanctions that may be imposed for infractions. Disciplinary rules are not designed to replicate state or federal criminal laws; rather, the code of conduct has aims, procedures and outcomes that differ from the criminal justice system.
Members of the WPI community are urged to make themselves familiar with the policies governing behavior on the campus. At certain times it may become necessary to update a policy or procedure described herein. Changes that are implemented prior to the next official printing of this manual will be distributed throughout the WPI community and posted in appropriate offices and living units by the Dean of Students Office. Once posted these changes will be in force.
