Code of Student Conduct

An updated Code of Student Conduct was approved by the Board of Trustees on June 24th, 2016, http://uknow.uky.edu/content/board-trustees-approves-changes-code-student-conduct.

To summarize, key changes to the Code are as follows:

  • The inclusion of the UK Creed as a foundational value of the UK student conduct process
  • User-friendly language reflective of best practices in the student conduct field
  • Compliance with recent interpretations of federal, state, and local laws (e.g., Title IX, Clery Act, etc.)
  • A clearly defined scope that applies to both on- and off-campus behavior
  • The inclusion of UK’s affirmative consent policy
  • Updated standards of conduct that represent model behaviors of the UK community
  • The addition of an amnesty policy related to alcohol and drug-related emergencies
  • The inclusion of alternative conflict resolution (e.g., mediation, restorative conferences, restorative justice circles) and an all-student hearing board to resolve incidents involving any registered student organization as procedural resolution options

We are hoping the updated Code will continue to move us towards a healthier climate for accountability and conflict resolution, and we are looking forward to working with the campus community to promote the new policies and procedures.
