Student Responsibilities and Rights

The material included in the student responsibilities and rights section of the Undergraduate Bulletin or the policies and procedures section of the Graduate Bulletin contains vital information for students, both undergraduate and graduate. It provides students in the academic community with a form of empowerment and a way of knowing the various resources available to them. Students are encouraged to read and familiarize themselves with this information. A Summary of Policies and Procedures for Undergraduates is also available.

Student Code of Conduct, Good Neighbor Policy, and STHM Students Doctrine of Responsibility

All students in the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management are expected to abide by Temple University’s Student Code of Conduct, Good Neighbor Policy, and the STHM Students Doctrine of Responsibility.

The School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM) represents a high degree of scholastic excellence. In turn, we expect an enhanced level of responsibility and preparation from our students. STHM students represent the school in a variety of forums, including, but not limited to, the classroom, internships and workplace settings. These environments require professionalism, commitment, knowledge and mutual respect. The STHM Students Doctrine of Responsibility policy will assist students in their pursuit of excellence while earning their degrees in Sport and Recreation Management or Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Grievance Procedures and Ombudsperson

University Ombudspersons are designated annually by the provost and vice presidents of the University. They are knowledgeable about harassment matters and trained to assist in understanding and resolving informal complaints. Ombudspersons are sensitive to the feelings, rights, and interests of all parties, and have demonstrated ability to handle confidential and sensitive matters in a discreet manner.

STHM’s Academic Grievance Procedures are detailed in the following document: STHM Academic Grievance Procedures. Additional information can be obtained from Temple University’s Student and Faculty Academic Rights and Responsibilities policy.
