The Student Discipline Panel is a vital mechanism for ensuring that academic misconduct is properly and thoroughly investigated, accurately determined and appropriately and fairly penalised. This service has a positive social impact on the Curtin academic community as it supports our commitment to academic integrity and contributes to our goal of ensuring that students graduate with the values, attributes and capabilities expected of a Curtin graduate. Working collaboratively, the panel consider moral and ethical principles, within the specific context of each case, to arrive at a fair outcome.
At Curtin, it’s vital that students have a voice in decisions that impact the University, and that they engage in and contribute to the university experience. The Student Partnership program has been established to ensure that wherever possible, staff will consult and collaborate with students, making them partners in decision making processes and empowering them to drive initiatives at the University. Not only does this ensure that the student voice is heard, but it can help students develop leadership and professional skills. It also provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience representing their fellow students while contributing to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals.
