UCLA Slack Code of Conduct

True Bruin Values

The True Bruin Values are derived from the UC Statement of Ethical Values and Standards of Ethical Conduct.  Members of the UCLA community are expected to hold themselves to True Bruin Values.

Student Conduct Code

The regulations within the UCLA Student Conduct Code have been developed to create and maintain a safe, supportive, and inclusive campus community. The Student Conduct Code applies to students in the online environment, even if they are not physically present on campus. We encourage you to familiarize yourselves with this policy and exercise thoughtful decision-making while engaging in the remote environment.

Reporting a Problem

If you feel that your safety is at risk, please contact the police or call 911.  You may also report an incident to the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.  While you can always follow normal channels, reporting misuse is built into the #slack-feedback and #slack-help channels, which are the same in every UCLA workspace. Go to one of these channels and click on the blue lightning bolt icon  in the message box on the bottom of the page. The lightning bolt is also available in the UCLA community workspace #slack-requests channel.

Then click on “Report Slack misuse.”


You will be taken to a form where you can report the incident.  UCLA Slack grid administrators will refer it to the Dean of Students Office, Office of Student Conduct or local HR unit or Employee & Labor Relations.  Requests are communicated privately and will not be visible in the channel.


Only share information that you would feel comfortable posting on a public channel.  Do not share addresses, phone numbers, or anything else you wouldn’t want to share with everyone. 

The content of private channels is only visible to those invited into the channels. Unless a member of a private channel invites a Slack administrator into the channel, the administrator will not be able to see the channel content or know who is participating in the channel.

All university rules regarding FERPA, not sharing student records, medical information or any other personal information apply.

Personally Identifiable Information

Do not create Slack messages that contain credit card numbers, social security numbers, or other personally identifiable information about a person. Be aware that applies to any attached files you might share using Slack.
