Personal Conduct Expectations

Rules and regulations provide the basis for a reasonably ordered campus life. The mere observance of rules, without the personal appropriation of the values they protect falls short of what the Johns Hopkins University “JHU” hopes for the campus community.

By enrolling into the Engineering Innovation program, students agree to meet the following expectations:

  • Will report and stay within the designated areas of the Program.
  • Will dress respectfully and wear clothing appropriate for the Program including closed toe shoes during the lab activities and long pants on the chemical processes lab day.
  • Will not smoke while participating in the Program.
  • Will not possess or consume alcohol or illegal narcotics while participating in the Program.
  • Will be punctual, courteous, and neat; will treat the Program staff, students, visitors, employees of the Program site and other participants with mutual courtesy and respect.
  • Will respect the property of the Johns Hopkins University, the other Program participants and the Program site.
  • Will follow the rules and policies of the Johns Hopkins University including the following:

The General Anti-Harassment Policy
The Policy Against Sexual Harassment
The Non-Discrimination Policy

Links to these policies can be found on the Johns Hopkins University Office of Institutional Equity website:

  • Will follow the Johns Hopkins University Student Code of Conduct. This code may be found here.
  • Will behave in a professional manner at all times.

Students enrolled in the Whiting School of Engineering, Engineering Innovations Summer Program assume a duty to conduct themselves in a manner appropriate to the Johns Hopkins University’s mission as an institution of higher learning. Students are obligated to refrain from acts which violate the academic integrity of the University. Violations of academic ethics include, but are not limited to: cheating, plagiarism, submitting the same or substantially similar work to satisfy the requirements of more than one course without permission, submitting as one’s own the same or substantially similar work of another, knowingly furnishing false information to any agent of the University for inclusion in academic record, falsification, forgery, alteration, destruction or misuse of official University documents or seal.


Failure to adhere to these policies can result in the immediate dismissal of the student from the Engineering Innovation Program. No refund will be granted to students suspended or dismissed for disciplinary reasons. The Engineering Innovation program reserves the right to dismiss a student whose academic standing or general conduct is considered unsatisfactory
