Codes of Conduct

LRC: Academic Integrity

  • The UWC has a proofreading policy. While tutors can assist on sentence-level issues, they cannot correct each error they find while reading through a student’s writing.  To avoid academic integrity violations, UWC tutors are required not to write on student papers.
  • To maintain academic integrity in Bronco Tutoring and RAMP, tutors are prohibited from providing answers to homework problems. In addition, tutors will not assist with take-home exams and quizzes.
  • Tutoring in all LRC programs is limited to currently enrolled Cal Poly Pomona students registered in Cal Poly Pomona courses.  Students will only receive tutoring on work that is their own.
  • In accordance with Cal Poly Pomona’s policies regarding Academic Integrity, the LRC maintains the same standard of honesty in its own academic environment. Please see the CPP Academic Integrity policy for more information.

LRC: Polices for Respectful Environment

  • Do not text or take calls during tutoring sessions.
  • Maintain respect for staff, tutors, tutees, and visitors. Verbal abuse, intimidation, and any form of harassment will not be tolerated.
  • Maintain an appropriate level of noise conducive to a productive learning environment.
  • Do not engage in behavior that could put yourself or others at risk of bodily harm.
  • Computer use is limited to professional or educational venues. Inappropriate searches or material (for example, pornographic, sexist, racist, homophobic) shall not be viewed or shared.
  • NO FOOD OR DRINK will be allowed in the center. Bottled water is permitted.

Library: Disorderly Behavior (from Library Code of Conduct)

Please do not engage in disorderly behavior of any kind, including verbal abuse, threats of violence, sexual harassment, or the activities that interfere with the activities of library staff and patrons. Behaving in a way that interferes with an employee’s performance of his/her duties, including, but not limited to, verbal abuse, intimidation, sexual harassment or harassment on account of race, religion, ethnic background, gender, or sexual orientation, violates the California Penal Code Sections 415 and 415.5. 

University: Zero Tolerance for Violence (from the President's message)

The University has zero tolerance for threats or acts of violence against members of the campus community.  The University prohibits and will take decisive action to eliminate:

  • Verbal harassment
  • Any act which is physically assaultive
  • Any threat to harm or endanger the safety of others
  • Behaviors or actions interpreted by a reasonable person as carrying the potential for violence and/or acts of aggression
  • Any threat to destroy or the actual destruction of property
  • Possession of a weapon (Penal Code 626.9 prohibits bringing a firearm, knife or dangerous weapon onto the campus of a public school including the California State University)

Such conduct is subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from employment, expulsion from the University, or civil or criminal prosecution, as appropriate.

Violation of LRC Attendance Policies and Codes of Conduct

The LRC reserves the right to deactivate a student’s account for violation of Attendance Policies or the Code of Conduct. The LRC policy is in accordance with Cal Poly Pomona’s policy for Exclusion of Students From Classes.

To reactivate an account the student must:

  1. Schedule and attend a meeting with the LRC Director and/or the Program Coordinator (Bronco Tutoring, UWC, or RAMP).
  2. Review the alleged infringement.
  3. Sign a copy of the LRC Attendance Policies and Codes of Conduct. The student will be reinstated at the LRC Director’s discretion.
  4. If reinstatement is denied, the student can petition the decision through the Office of Academic Affairs.
