301.8 - Student Code of Conduct

University Group Policy #301.8

I.  Policy Statement

The university community respects certain principles that govern socially and academically acceptable standards of good conduct and behavior. All community members, including students, are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the regulations of the university and to comply with municipal, state and federal laws. Violations of campus or University policies, rules or regulations, or federal, state, or local law may result in a violation of the student Code of Conduct and imposition of student discipline. The Code of Conduct provides the framework for identifying the standards of behavior and minimum due process requirements for addressing or adjudicating violations. The Chancellor has the authority to create or modify disciplinary measures, processes, and penalties of the Code of Conduct in accordance with procedural and substantive due process safeguards applicable to disciplinary actions as required by Section 502D(3) of The Code of The UNC Board of Governors, Policy 700.4.1 of the UNC Policy Manual, and applicable campus policies, as they may be amended from time to time. Where there is a conflict between The Code of The UNC Board of Governors and this Code of Conduct, then The Code of The UNC Board of Governors will control.

II.     Applicability

This policy applies to Winston-Salem State University students.
