The Student Code of Conduct and Conduct Process

Community Standards: Values Statement

As a diverse community of learners, all members of the University of New Hampshire community are expected to uphold the highest standards of mutual respect and integrity. These core values are key components of the University of New Hampshire experience and reflect the expectations of its students. Students must be able to live, work and learn in an environment which deliberately seeks multiple perspectives and supports the free and open exchange of ideas through educational discourse. Students who engage in prohibited academic and behavior conduct, interfere with their ability, and the ability of others, to take full advantage of university life, and will thus be subject to disciplinary action through the student conduct process. Community Standards will ensure that the rights of all students are guaranteed, and those engaged in the conduct process are afforded a fair, equitable and meaningful opportunity to address allegations of prohibited conduct. Essential to its mission, Community Standards provides a continuum of high-impact practices and interventions, and cultivates pathways for enhanced reflection, accountability, and ethical development, that prepares students to lead lives of consequence. The established policies and behavioral expectations outlined in the Student Code of Conduct, are intended to preserve and protect the University’s educational mission of teaching, research, and public service.
