The University is a community
of scholars in which the ideas of freedom of inquiry, thought, expression
and of the individual are sustained. It is committed to preserving
the exercise of any right guaranteed to the individual by the constitution.
It is clear that in a community of learning, willful disruption
of the educational process, destruction of property and interference
with the orderly process of the University or with the rights of
the other members of the University will not be tolerated. University
students are both citizens and members of the academic community
as well as the local community.
When students enter the University
they take upon themselves certain responsibilities and obligations
including satisfactory academic performance and social behaviors
consistent with the lawful purposes of the college. Student conduct
therefore is not considered in isolation within the University
community but as an integral part of the educational process All
students are expected to know and abide by this code of student
conduct ignorance is no excuse.
