Student Discipline Panel

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 Health Sciences graduate.

The Student Discipline Panel comprises a Chair (the Faculty’s Director of Students), an academic staff member and a student member.  Members are advocates for integrity in the academic community, promoting honesty, trust and fairness. Working collaboratively, the panel consider moral and ethical principles, within the specific context of each case, to arrive at a fair outcome.
