In order to sustain an environment that supports optimal learning opportunities and promotes personal growth, the American University of Kuwait expects all community members (students, faculty, and staff) to adhere to the guidelines and policies established by the institution. These guidelines and policies set forth the ethical standards and organizational values by which AUK operates as an institution of higher education. The University Code of Conduct, Student Code of Conduct, and the Code of Academic Honesty and Integrity provide general explanations of community members' rights and responsibilities, outline acceptable and unacceptable behaviors, and describe specific disciplinary procedures and sanctions.
Reporting of behavioral incidents is done by completing an Incident Report Form within 24 hours of the incident and submitting the form to the Office of Student Life or to Campus Security. Incident reports are investigated and if required, the adjudication process is started.
