WGU believes that all members of the WGU Community are entitled to a professional, safe, and engaging learning environment at every step point of their relationship with the University community. WGU considers its students to be emerging and developing professionals who are seeking intellectual and personal growth to meet career demands.  WGU therefore deems it important that students find opportunities to productively interact with other WGU students, faculty/staff, and outside partners to develop the skills and attitudes expected in the workplace

To that end, the Career and Professional Development Center at WGU expects that students are engaging in a professional and respectful manner. This expectation extends to written communications; one-on-one meetings; small group conversations; and large group meetings with external partners and employers; and any other opportunities to represent yourself and WGU. This expectation keeps our environments professional and productive and ensures that you are best representing yourself and your skills to all partners who are assisting you with your career and professional search. Failure to meet these expectations may result in removal from events, losing access to future events and services and/or a report to the Student Conduct Office.
