Any student may be temporarily suspended or permanently dismissed for violations of the Galvanize Code of Conduct.


In general, the first violation of the Code of Conduct will result in a written warning, but conduct deemed to be sufficiently disruptive or severe, such as harassment of another student, staff member, or community member, may result in immediate suspension or dismissal.

School officials, in collaboration with instructors, will review each case and make a determination regarding the student's actions and status. If the student does not improve his or her conduct after receiving a warning, the student will be permanently dismissed.


Galvanize welcomes qualified students and employees of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally available through Galvanize. Consistent with its obligations under the law, Galvanize prohibits unlawful discrimination on the bases of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law in the administration of the programs and activities.

Galvanize also prohibits unlawful harassment including sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual and disruptive language and imagery is not appropriate for any campus, including Galvanize and member areas and cafes.

Students asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. We expect students to follow these rules at all campuses and class-related social events. Our members, staff, and guests are also subject to this policy against harassment.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Galvanize faculty or staff immediately. Galvanize faculty and staff will help students contact security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe.
