As members of a learning community, it is important that all students understand and abide by the policies and procedures outlined in the Student Handbook. Adherence to these policies and procedures are critical to promoting a strong community where all members feel respected, safe, and valued.

The Student Handbook provides all information on University policies and procedures, and students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with that document. 

If a student is referred for conduct action, we expect them to participate in a manner that is civil and respectful. Honesty and cooperation are key to promoting a fair process, and to help students to reflect upon, and learn from, their experiences. Outcomes and sanctions resulting from the conduct process are intended to guide students in this reflective learning process, and we expect students to comply with all sanctions and mandates as prescribed.
