As a center of learning, the University of Washington has the obligation to maintain conditions conducive to freedom of inquiry and expression to the maximum degree compatible with the orderly conduct of its functions.
Our campus community is committed to maintaining the highest level of academic and behavioral integrity. Community Standards & Student Conduct (CSSC) has an online tool to make reporting alleged incidents of student misconduct easier for faculty, staff, and students.
