Information for Faculty and Staff
The primary responsibility for managing the classroom environment rests with the faculty. Students who engage in any prohibited or unlawful acts that result in disruption of a class may be directed by the faculty member to leave the class for the remainder of the class period. Longer separations from a class must be preceded by a student conduct meeting as outlined in this Code or procedures for managing academic offenses as outlined in the University Senate Rules, Section 6.4 (Disposition of Cases of Academic Offenses).
Incidents regarding academic misconduct, such as incidents of cheating and plagiarism are guided by the Office of Academic Ombud Services. There are specific policies and procedures in place to manage academic integrity concerns. See S.R. 6.3.0 for the Senate Rules regarding academic misconduct.
Incidents regarding non-academic misconduct, such as alcohol and controlled substance use, noise/disturbances in the community, and behaviors in the residence halls, are guided by the Code of Student Conduct. The Code contains information regarding specific policies and procedures to manage non-academic concerns.
