Highlights from the PLU Code of Conduct | PLU学生行为准则重点摘要
The Student Code of Conduct contains policies and procedures that apply to all students enrolled in courses at Pacific Lutheran University. The Student Code of Conduct can be found online at www.plu.edu/srr/student-code-of-conduct/ and covers policies including (but not limited to):
学生行为准则包含适用于所有参加太平洋路德大学课程的学生之政策和程序。学生行为准则可在 www.plu.edu/srr/student-code-of-conduct/ 线上查閱。并且，其涵盖政策包括（但不限于）：
The University reserves the right to follow the procedures outlined in the Student Conduct System if a student’s behavior violates the Student Code of Conduct, regardless of where the behavior occurs. The University will generally, but not exclusively, respond to off-campus behavior if an alleged violation occurs while a student is engaged in a PLU-sponsored or sanctioned event (i.e., study away, alternative spring break, athletics, music performance, outdoor recreation), the behavior raises concern for the safety of those on-campus or in the neighboring community, or the behavior jeopardizes the university’s interests in the community.
In addition, the university may follow the procedures outlined in the Student Conduct System whenever a student is accused of a criminal act, regardless of the location of its occurrence.
PLU’s expectation is that students will not cheat or plagiarize, and that they will not condone these behaviors or assist others who cheat or plagiarize. Academic misconduct not only jeopardizes the career of the individual student involved, but also undermines the scholastic achievements of all PLU students and attacks the mission of this institution. Students are inherently responsible to do their own work, thereby insuring the integrity of their academic records.
What is Academic Dishonesty?
PLU defines Academic Dishonesty as violating procedures prescribed to protect the integrity of an assignment, test, or other evaluation. The most common forms of academic dishonesty are cheating and plagiarism.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
- Submitting material that is not yours, such as submitting a downloaded paper off of the Internet; or
- Making up information, such as data for a lab report; or
- Collaborating with others on assignments without the instructor’s consent; or
- Cooperating with or helping another student to cheat; or
- Other forms of dishonest behavior, such as having another person take an exam for you, altering exam answers and requesting the exam be re-graded, or communicating with anyone other than a proctor or instructor during an exam.
Plagiarism is when someone omits, misrepresents, or inaccurately documents how the work of others appears in and influences one’s own work. It is the act of using any source (published, unpublished, or one’s own) that appears in or directly influences your work without properly identifying it, such as (but not limited to):
- Directly quoting the words of others without attribution and without using quotation marks or other accepted formats to identify them; or
- Re-using work you’ve done in other courses without prior approval from the current instructor; or,
- Using altered wording, materials, or ideas of others without properly identifying their source; or
- Representing someone else’s idea or strategy as your own
Matters of plagiarism are taken very seriously by both administration and faculty. If you are unsure about something you want to do or the proper use of materials, it is your responsibility to ask the instructor for clarification.
If an instructor knows or suspects a student is plagiarizing, they will likely start out by meeting with the student (and possibly a witness) to discuss the situation. Depending on the outcome of that meeting, they may choose to submit a report to the administration describing the academic dishonesty and/or impose penalties (such as failing grades) in their course.
Alcohol possession and use is permitted in South Hall under the following guidelines. The following policy has been established in recognition of, and coordination with, Washington State law and PLU’s university policy on Alcoholic Beverages. Possession of an open container of alcohol and/or consumption of alcohol in South Hall common areas (hallways, lounges, etc.) is prohibited. Alcoholic beverages are only permitted in South Hall common areas as they are being transported to an apartment where alcohol is permitted.
- Possession and/or consumption of alcohol in a unit is permitted if all assigned residents of a unit are 21 years of age or older. In units where alcohol is permitted, all guests present when alcohol is open must be 21 years of age or older.
- Prior to permitting alcoholic beverages in a unit, all residents of the unit must complete an online alcohol education session provided by residence hall staff. This requirement must be fulfilled prior to each academic year for continuing students. Activities and devices facilitating or promoting excessive consumption of alcohol, including but not limited to: drinking games, funnels, beer bongs, common-source containers (kegs, pony kegs, party balls, etc.), are prohibited.

Adapted from www.plu.edu/srr/sexual-misconduct-policy/
Pacific Lutheran University takes Sexual Misconduct very seriously. Sexual Misconduct is a broad term encompassing any unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that is committed without Consent (as PLU defines it in this policy) and/or by force, intimidation, coercion or manipulation. As defined by PLU, the term Sexual Misconduct includes Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse, Non-Consensual Sexual Contact, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Exploitation, Dating/Domestic/Relationship Violence, Stalking, and Sexual Intimidation.
Sexual Misconduct can be committed by a person upon another regardless of gender, and it can occur between people of the same or different sex. It can occur between strangers or acquaintances, including people involved in a current or previous intimate or sexual relationship. Sexual Misconduct may vary in its severity and consists of a range of behavior.
The Sexual Misconduct Policy outlines the process used by PLU to address a concern, investigate allegations of Sexual Misconduct involving students, and determine whether a student has violated the policy. It also outlines the rights, resources, and support systems available to victims of Sexual Misconduct.
We recommend all students read the full Sexual Misconduct Policy and the Bystander Information available on the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities website to help keep our community and its members safe.
The use of tobacco products is prohibited on the PLU campus, including the residence halls, inside campus buildings, in parking lots, on sidewalks, and any other campus property. This includes tobacco, marijuana, hookah (except for approved cultural and religious celebrations), e-cigarettes, vaporizers, or any items that emit gas or smoke. Possession of cigarettes, hookahs, e-cigarettes, and vaporizers are permitted, as long as these items are not being used on campus or in campus buildings and for legal purposes only.
The closest places to South Hall where smoking is allowed are the south side of 127th Street (across the street from South Hall), the east side of Park Avenue (across the street from South Hall Parking Lot), away from 126th Street/the Neeb Center.

Students in the United States on a J-1 Visa are not permitted to work during their period of study. This includes e-commerce with customers back in China. Because it is a violation of their visa, students found to be working while at PLU will be given one warning (written and verbal). Students found to be working after their warning will be expelled from the program, will have their J-1 visa terminated, and must return to China as directed by PLU’s International Student Services staff.
You are subject to the same student conduct process as all PLU students where residence hall and general student code of conduct policies apply.
Violations of ABC program policies alone will be handled through conversations between the student(s) involved, ABC program instructors, Continuing Education staff, and any other relevant parties. In most cases, three warnings (verbal and/or written) will be given before expulsion from the program is considered. Any student who is expelled from the ABC program will have their J-1 visa terminated and must return to China as directed by PLU’s International Student Services staff.
Students will enroll in PLU’s international student health insurance plan and the premium paid will be deducted from their tuition due. More information on the specifics of payments and enrollment will be provided this summer.
The plan, which can be used at the PLU Student Health Center and with specific covered providers. Services received off campus (and some on campus) may have additional charges attached to them, which students are responsible for.
