Virtual Programming Code of Conduct

We are excited that you have signed up for a Princeton University virtual program!  In order to ensure everyone’s enjoyment of the program, we require all participants and their parents/legal guardians to review and become familiar with this Code of Conduct prior to the program start date.  (Your individual program may have additional requirements, and the program staff will provide those requirements to you.)  Please be aware that violation of this Code of Conduct may result in payment charges and/or removal of the participant from the program without refund.  In addition, we may report such violations to the participant’s parent/legal guardian, University offices and/or law enforcement. 

1. Disorderly Conduct (or Violation of Applicable Laws) 
Participants are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the law and commonly accepted standards of behavior. As such, the University prohibits behaviors that are disruptive or disrespectful of others. This includes, but is not limited to, bullying or combative conduct, harassing or derogatory language, excessive noise and setting inappropriate background images in connection with one’s virtual programming platform account.  

2. Sexual Misconduct 
The University prohibits sex or gender discrimination, including sexual misconduct such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence. These behaviors, which are described in detail in Section 1.3 of Princeton University’s Rights, Rules and Responsibilities, are harmful to the well-being of our community members, the learning/working environment, and collegial relationships among our community members.  

3. Alcohol and Drugs 
The University prohibits the consumption and serving of alcoholic beverages by and to persons under 21 years of age.  In addition, the University prohibits the unlawful use or distribution of controlled substances in any amount on University property, or in connection with a University activity. (This includes the use or distribution of prescription drugs without a prescription.)  

4. Recordings and Photographs
The University prohibits any recording and photographs of virtual programming without the prior written permission of the program director.  

5. Meeting Restrictions
The University prohibits sharing of meeting information (e.g. Zoom link) with anyone who is not a registered participant of the program, and inviting of anyone who is not registered for the program or who is not authorized in writing by program staff to participate in virtual programming. Unregistered individuals (e.g. siblings, friends) cannot accompany participants in the virtual programming.

6. Communications with Program Staff
The University prohibits communications between participants and program staff outside of program-related business and official communication channels such as a Princeton University Zoom account or Princeton University email. The University discourages participants from following program staff on any social media platform or exchanging any personal contact information such as cell-phone numbers.
