Like all universities, the School of Education has policies in place to ensure that students, faculty and staff all enjoy ideal circumstances for work and learning throughout their time here. All policies are in place to promote the rights, welfare, integrity, safety, property and health of all members of our academic community.

Much of our policy information is available in our Academic Catalog. Specific areas of interest within that policy are linked by area below:

The Johns Hopkins University Sexual Violence, Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy 

Persons who are the victims of sexual violence may pursue internal University disciplinary action against the perpetrator in accordance with the JHU's Procedures on Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence and Stalking and Sexual Violence, Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy. The University’s disciplinary process may be initiated by bringing a complaint of sexual violence to the University's Title IX Coordinator, School of Education Student Affairs Office, deans, program faculty leads, supervisors, security officers, academic administrators, or other responsible employees identified in the University Procedures.

JHU Compliance Hotline

The mission of Johns Hopkins University is to educate its students and cultivate their capacity for life-long learning, to foster independent and original research, and to bring the benefits of discovery to the world. In service to this mission, the University strives to promote an environment of integrity, ethics and safety. All members of the Johns Hopkins community are expected to uphold these standards, which is why The Johns Hopkins Compliance Line was established. This independently administered toll-free hotline allows for anonymous (if desired) reporting of serious concerns or violations of any kind. Examples include violations of regulations for scientific and scholarly actions and breaches of student life policies. Any possible risk involving non-compliance with a law, regulation, or policy should be reported by calling the Compliance Hotline at 1-877-WE COMPLY (1-877-932-6675).
