 Because the size of the site community and the availability of resources and staffing to address student conduct issues vary, the response to student misconduct occurring at a site necessarily will vary in order to effectively safeguard the interests of the site community. For this reason, students charged with misconduct at a site may be required to return to their home campuses for the resolution of student disciplinary proceedings. Because the size of the site community and the availability of resources and staffing to address student conduct issues vary, the response to student misconduct occurring at a site necessarily will vary in order to effectively safeguard the interests of the site community.

 +=== NYUAD Statement of Values ===
 +
 +In accepting a place in this Regional Academic Seminar, you acknowledge the importance of being a member of an
 +exceptionally committed and responsible team of student scholars as well as the need for a high degree of interdependence among team members to maximize learning, safety, and health. The seminar is not just classroom sessions while abroad. It is the entire experience – 24/7 from the time you leave for the airport until you return. You should expect to have no free or independent time during the seminar.
 +
 +Because of the brevity and intensive nature of the seminar, we require your highest cooperation,​ use of good judgment, and adherence to regional academic seminar protocols. Faculty, study abroad professionals,​ and local experts have created a fulltime schedule of engagements that require the group to function as a team at all times. Being late, leaving the group to pursue independent activities, ignoring health and/or safety protocols, or being willfully disrespectful to members of the team or local community can create significant impediments to the successful delivery of the seminar. Consider the seminar the equivalent of an extended and important sports match, a game for which members of the team follow rules in order to play or a theater production in which you agree to be a member of the company. You are representing NYUAD at all times, both as an individual and as a team of committed scholars.
 +
 +We ask that you take exemplary and continuing responsibility for yourself and your teammates by, for example,
 +  - following the schedule. Being on time and well prepared to learn from each activity.
 +  - demonstrating respect for other students, seminar leaders, and community hosts. Acting with kindness and caring.
 +  - bringing mindfulness to each engagement. Preparing for each presentation/​activity,​ being highly attentive, taking good field notes, contributing actively to discussion, and extending gratitude.
 +  - helping one another learn. Encouraging disciplined observation,​ intercultural sensitivity,​ deep analysis, synergy with previous course content, and overall mindfulness that transforms direct experience into understanding the world in more complex ways.
 +  - following guidance to the team on appropriate dress and comportment in the new environment. Encouraging other team members to do the same.
 +  - strictly following the health protocols and encouraging all on the team to do so. Taking no unnecessary risks with your health.
 +  - strictly following team safety protocols including the following as well as those noted in the Predeparture Orientation Handbook:
 +    - Not riding non-program arranged vehicles, including motorcycles,​ motorcycle taxis, tuk-tuks, private cars.
 +    - Always staying with the group as scheduled. No independent activities from the group are allowed.
 +    - Remaining at the group designated accommodation as scheduled. No independent activities are permitted outside the hotel after the group has returned for the evening. ​
 +    - No consuming of alcohol at any time during the regional seminar.
 +    - Taking no undue risk to your safety or that of the team members. Immediately refraining from risky activity when asked to do so.
 +    - Obeying local laws, the NYUAD Code of Student Conduct, and the NYUAD Study Away Standard at all times.
