Students may not engage in behavior that disrupts the learning environment, violates the rights of others or otherwise violates the Student Code of Conduct (Code), university rules, regulations, or procedures. Students and student organizations will be responsible for ensuring that they and their guests comply with the Code while on property owned or controlled by the university or at activities authorized or sponsored by the university.
  2. The university may initiate disciplinary action and impose sanctions on any student or student organization found responsible for committing, attempting to commit, or intentionally assisting in the commission of any of the following prohibited forms of conduct:
    1. cheating, plagiarism, or other forms of academic dishonesty;
    2. forgery, falsification, alteration, or misuse of documents, funds, property or electronic records;
    3. damage or destruction of property;
    4. theft of property or services;
    5. harassment;
    6. discrimination;
    7. hazing;
    8. endangerment, assault, or infliction of physical harm;
    9. gender-based or sexual misconduct;
    10. disruptive or obstructive actions;
    11. mistreatment of animals;
    12. misuse of firearms, explosives, weapons, dangerous devices, or dangerous chemicals;

    16. violation of regents’ policy, university regulation, rules, or procedures; or
    17. any other actions that result in unreasonable interference with the learning environment or the rights of others.
  3. Examples of actions that constitute these prohibitions will be described in the university regulation and MAU rules and procedures.
  4. This policy and university regulation and MAU rules and procedures are not intended to define prohibited conduct in exhaustive terms, but rather to set forth examples to serve as guidelines for acceptable and unacceptable behavior. 

The university has established procedures for enforcing the UA code of conduct. Each student at the university shall be afforded due process in all disciplinary matters. For a complete guide to these procedures, please refer to Board of Regents Policy and University Regulation 09.02 (PDF).
