Student Conduct and Community Standards

As with any community, the University has established standards of conduct for its members. As members of teh University community, students are expected to adhere to all published rules, regulations, and policies. Students are also members of the Lawrence community and are obligated to the laws of the city, county, state and nation. The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities outlines the rights of students and many of the standards of conduct (responsibilities) expected within the University of Kansas community.

The community standards set forth in The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities contribute to the best environment for students to live and learn. The enforcement of comunity standards allows KU to maintain and strengthen the ethical climate on campus and to promote the academic integrity of the University. Our goal in administering the non-academic misconduct process has education at the forefront.
