University Student Conduct Code:

The University Student Conduct Code provides students, faculty, staff, and visitors with a procedural guide to initiate a complaint against a student when their rights as members or visitors to the University community have been allegedly violated. For all students, the Conduct Code supports compliance with state and federal laws pertaining to drugs, alcohol, weapons, physical assault, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual assault or abuse, acquaintance (date) rape, relationship violence, discrimination, and racial and sexual preference harassment. Intervention by the Office of University Standards addresses inappropriate conduct and also serves to educate students on how their conduct affected themselves, others, and the University community.

University expectations for student conduct as outlined in the University Student Conduct Code are reviewed through the Rules Revision Committee that includes student participation.
