Standards of Behavior and Student Accountability

In order to assist students in determining a framework in which to measure the acceptability of daily living activities, a code of student conduct has been formulated. This document was endorsed by the Student Affairs Committee of the Faculty Senate, the Student Senate, and the Graduate Council and approved by the Board of Trustees. The Student Conduct Code is to be referenced in the adjudication of the student disciplinary process. The Standards of Behavior and Student Accountability contain specific information on such things as the use of alcoholic beverages; hazing; student organization membership requirements; right of peaceful assembly; possession, use, or distribution of drugs and narcotics; use of campus facilities; respect for a multicultural population; and sexual harassment. Students are urged to familiarize themselves with the responsibilities outlined therein.

The Student Conduct Code for both undergraduate and graduate students is in the Student Handbook, which is available in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Dean of Students' website, http://www1.wne.edu/student-activities/doc/handbook-2015-2016.pdf
