Purpose of Policy: The Student Code of Conduct articulates the University's expectations of behavior for students, student groups, and student organizations and the potential outcomes to be imposed for inappropriate conduct.  This policy explains the University's requirements for notice, and the student, student groups, and student organizations opportunity to be heard with regard to alleged violation(s) of the Student Code of Conduct.  The Student Code of Conduct is not intended to be exhaustive in terms of defining all acts of misconduct.  The Student Code of Conduct specifies the rights and responsibilities of students, student groups, student organizations, the university, and the rights of other parties going through the Student Conduct Process.  Students, student groups, and student organizations are expected to engage in conduct that represents the mission, vision, and values of the university.  Sanctions implemented through the Student Conduct Process are designed to provide students, student groups, and student organizations with the opportunity to accept responsibility, provide accountability, reflect on their choices, challenge their decision-making processes, and assist them in changing their behavior to better align with the University's expectations.  Being a member of the UT Community is a privilege.  Actions by students, student groups, or student organizations that interfere with the welfare and/or safety of the UT Community are not acceptable, and will not be tolerated.
