The primary purpose of discipline is educational in nature and is aimed at the development of responsible student conduct.

The University has the right and the duty to protect its educational purpose through setting and maintaining standards and regulations considered essential to its purpose. Guidelines for proper professional conduct include honesty and personal integrity; respect for human rights, dignity, and well being; proper language; neatness in personal appearance; courtesy; and cooperation. Students are expected to comply with policies dealing with academic and nonacademic misconduct. Matters related to academic misconduct are managed in accordance with the policy that follows the presentation of the Honor Code, copies of which are also available in the Office of the Dean.
