Community Standards & Resources

Community Standards and Student Conduct

As a member of the NYU community, you will be held to a standard of conduct befitting of a scholar and a young adult. These standards of conduct will teach you the appropriate behavior for a professional and college graduate, while ensuring that our community is a safe, respectful, and supportive environment. Community Standards are especially important at NYU Shanghai, where you are not only a member of our community but also a guest of Shanghai and the People’s Republic of China.

Community Standards Handbook 2019The NYU Shanghai Community Standards Handbook outlines the specific standards that you will be held to, but it is important in general to remember that your behavior and actions reflect on the University wherever you are in Shanghai or the world.

Please review the NYU Shanghai Community Standards Handbook to get a better understanding of these standards and the possible process and sanctions resulting from a violation. More information on policy violations and sanctions will be distributed to students at various times during the year. It is important to remember as you begin to study abroad that you will be held to the standards of each specific site’s policies and local country’s laws. It is suggested that you review these policies and laws before you arrive.

Misconduct Related to Illegal Substances

These procedures are those by which alleged violations of University policies relating to illegal substances will be reviewed and resolved for students in attendance at NYU Shanghai.


Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy

To enhance our response to sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking — and to bring the University in compliance with new U.S. federal mandates — NYU has developed a new sexual misconduct policy. Links to the policy and related documents are below.
