Dear new and returning students,
We are delighted to welcome you to the University of Southern California for an exciting school year. Whether you are new to USC or returning for another year, you know how important it is to get off to a good start. We want to make sure you are aware of the wealth of resources USC has invested in your success both inside and outside the classroom. Therefore, throughout the year my office will offer brief, but timely messages.
In my first message, I want to remind you that USC has a number of policies that govern behavior for members of the community. These policies are important to ensuring our shared responsibility of self-care and care for others. It is an expectation that all students will familiarize themselves with the content of these documents:
- SCampus contains the Student Code of Conduct, as well as the rules regarding academic affairs, student organizations, and safety. Important reminders about student behavior and rights are included in this publication, which is available at https://policy.usc.edu/student/scampus/.
- Policy and Procedures on Student Sexual, Interpersonal, and Protected Class Misconduct is available at https://policy.usc.edu/student-misconduct/.
Again, welcome back for another great year. We wish you the best in your personal, career and academic endeavors.
