Jurisdiction under these policies and procedures is as follows:
A. Jurisdiction over students enrolled in the Joint Doctoral Program in Social Work and Social Science
lies with the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies for charges related to academic
misconduct. For charges related to professional misconduct during the course of studies leading to
the MSW degree or charges not covered by the Rackham academic integrity policy, jurisdiction lies with
the School of Social Work.
B. Jurisdiction over students from other schools and colleges within the university, who are or have been
enrolled in social work courses as cognates, lies with the students' respective units. For students
enrolled in dual-degree programs between the School of Social Work and another school or college
at the University of Michigan, jurisdiction lies with the unit(s) in which the alleged misconduct occurred.
C. In the event there is a dispute or lack of clarity about which school or college shall take jurisdiction,
the dean of the School of Social Work, in consultation with the Office of General Counsel and the head
of any other interested unit, will decide which procedures to employ.
