Amgen Scholars Program: Code of Conduct

During the course of your participation as an Amgen Scholar, you must comply with all applicable University of Toronto policies and procedures. You will receive further information about University of Toronto policies and procedures during the Summer Program Orientation.

Your behavior both in the lab and outside the lab reflects not only upon you, but also on your home and summer program universities, and the Amgen Foundation. The University of Toronto and the Amgen Foundation therefore expect you to treat your peers and supervisors and members of the community with courtesy and respect. In addition, the University of Toronto and the Amgen Foundation require you to act responsibly at the housing facilities provided by the University of Toronto for the summer program and those provided for the regional symposium, whether you are a resident in the housing facilities or a visitor to the housing facilities. This includes abiding by all local, provincial, and federal laws, including those prohibiting persons under the legal age from consuming alcoholic beverages, driving while intoxicated, and use, possession, or trafficking of illegal drugs.

If the University of Toronto and/or the Amgen Foundation determine that a student has acted in an unprofessional or irresponsible manner, or exercised poor judgment in a way that reflects negatively on the University of Toronto or the Amgen Foundation, appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken, up to and including immediate termination from the program. At
University of Toronto, the standard disciplinary process will be followed in accordance with applicable campus policies and procedures.
