3.1 Academic and Professional Ethics

The School of Music espouses the highest standards of academic and professional ethics and conduct. Ethical behaviour encompasses integrity, respect, and professionalism, and also means that students will take responsibility for their learning and pursue academic goals in an honest and engaged manner.

In addition to meeting the Student Code of Conduct, students must meet the guidelines for academic and professional ethics and conduct outlined in the document Professionalism in Music Practice, available through the School of Music.

This expectation of professional conduct applies to students throughout their period of enrolment in School of Music programs, in all learning and professional settings (classes, rehearsals, coachings, internships, fieldwork, work placements, conferences, etc.). These expectations apply to behaviours in structured learning, professional, or public settings whether in-person or through various communication media and/or social media platforms.
