VCU Honor System: Get familiar with the Honor system: The VCU Honor System policy describes the responsibilities of students, faculty and administration in upholding academic integrity. According to this policy, "Members of the academic community are required to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of academic honesty, ethics and integrity at all times." Students and faculty are expected to read the policy in full and learn about its requirements.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA): Avoid sharing or releasing information about students. Unless FERPA permits a certain disclosure, VCU generally requires consent from a student to disclose information from their education record to another individual. This now includes sharing of the student’s mailing address or email address with entities outside of VCU.

To download a class list with contact information (emails) or with photos, you need to go to the Reporting Center. For this you need VPN access (which you will likely need at some point in the future). For the Reporting Center, go to the myVCU portal and look under General Resources. Once in the Reporting Center, look for the Faculty folder.
