The Code of Student Conduct contains University conduct regulations that describe prohibited behavior for students. If a student is causing a classroom disruption, but does not appear to be a threat to themselves or others, discuss the disruptive behavior with the student individually and file a written complaint with Student Conduct. Remember, you have the authority to ask a disruptive student to leave a classroom or office temporarily.
Any member of the University community may file a complaint against any student for misconduct. Incidents of alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct should be reported to the Student Conduct office. Any alleged violation should be submitted as soon as possible after the event takes place, preferably within one month of the occurrence. Contact Student Conduct to discuss the process or learn more at 205-348-8234.
