Student Safety & Conduct

Campus life at SIM GE is rich and vibrant, with a strong culture of student involvement in areas like student councils, arts and sports.

We have put in place processes and operational procedures to ensure a safe and conducive environment for you to study and play. At the same time, we encourage you to help us maintain a harmonious environment for everyone.

Student Safety

The Student Development Department (SDEV) strives towards building a culture of safety for all students participating in co-curricular activities. We take our role seriously, and we work to formulate sound policies and ensure that the right processes are in place.

While we have a duty of care to all students participating in our suite of SDEV events and activities, safety is still the responsibility of everyone.

Student Conduct

Maintaining the welfare of the SIM GE community is our priority. We strive to make the campus a conducive place to study, work and play, where everyone is treated with respect and courtesy.

Student Development facilitates SIMGE’s student conduct process, which is viewed as a platform to nurture and provide a learning experience among students.
