Proposed Change to the Student Code of Conduct

This hearing was open to all members of the University community as well as the general public. Per the rulemaking process, the University is currently reviewing the written and oral comments that were submitted concerning the proposed Student Code of Conduct.

The proposed changes can be found in the attached document. The document reflects the edits that have been made to the Proposed Code of Conduct since the initial Board of Trustees passage in October 2015.
