School of Health Professions and Human Services Policy on Ethical and Professional Performance
Students are expected to behave in an ethical and professional manner according to the guidelines for student conduct and academic honesty at Hofstra University and to the professional standards identified in their respective programs in the School of Health Professions and Human Services. Satisfactory interpersonal behavior and professional performance in classes and meetings, internships, and practica are expected. If a report is received concerning an ethics violation, or an incident of inappropriate behavior as defined by the individual program handbook and/or Student Judicial Code, established procedures will be followed to investigate the issue and determine the course of action. A written remedial plan, including designated corrective action, may be instituted at the discretion of the program director.
It is our policy that if a student is dismissed from one placement before and/or during the semester of internal and external placements, that student may be counseled or dismissed from the program. If the student is dismissed from two placements, this will constitute being dismissed from the program. In addition, the program requirements will not be met and the student will not be recommended for certification by Hofstra University.
