Code of Student Conduct
Pursuit of a college education provides an opportunity for exploration of new ideas, experimentation, self-examination, formation of new friendships, and development of ideals and directions. An academic community is a place where the free exchange of ideas and concepts can take place among faculty, staff, and students in an atmosphere that allows for debate and disagreement on contemporary issues.
In order to protect our community, certain standards of behavior are expected of all members of the University community, including students. In general, the University of Kentucky expects students to: maintain standards of personal integrity that are in harmony with the educational goals of the institution; observe national, state and local laws, as well as University regulations; and, respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people.
