The code of student conduct is established to foster and protect the core missions of the university, to foster the scholarly and civic development of the university's students in a safe and secure learning environment, and to protect the people, properties and processes that support the university and its missions. The core missions of the university are teaching, learning, service and research.
The code governs all campuses of the university.
"University premises" means all lands, buildings, and facilities owned, leased, or operated by the university. The term "student" means an individual who has paid an acceptance fee, registered for classes, or otherwise entered into any other contractual relationship with the university to take instruction.
A safe and secure environment allows for a positive learning environment. In turn, a positive learning environment promotes student learning. To successfully achieve these outcomes, it is necessary to develop a clear set of student expectations.
