The Office of Student Affairs provides policies to ensure that students, staff, and faculty are living in a safe and healthy community.
The Student Conduct Code describes expected standards of behavior for all students, including academic conduct and general conduct. It outlines students' rights, responsibilities, and the campus processes for adjudicating alleged violations. The code promotes honesty, integrity, accountability, rights, and responsibilities associated with constructive citizenship in our academic community. More information can be found here.

These policies apply to all faculty, staff, and students: 1) on University property; 2) at University-sponsored events; or 3) at events sponsored by University-recognized organizations.
