THE STUDENT AND THE UNIVERSITY
A. MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY. By enrolling at the University of Idaho, students voluntarily accept responsibility for compliance with all university policies as well as local ordinances, state laws, and federal laws. Each student shall be responsible for his/her conduct at all times from the time the university grants admission through the actual awarding of a degree. This includes the period before classes begin or after classes end, and periods between terms of actual enrollment. Conduct that is not discovered until after a degree is awarded is also included.
The university's part is to carry out its commitment to higher education, to fulfill its responsibilities in pursuit of the academic goals and objectives of all members of the university community, and to meet its obligation to provide an atmosphere in which students will have an opportunity to be heard in matters affecting their welfare. The university reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action to protect the safety and well-being of the campus community. Students shall have the rights and responsibilities outlined in this policy and in FSH 2200, 2300, and 2400.
B. STATEMENT OF STUDENT VALUES (passed by ASUI Senate in April 2014). The Statement of Student Values is a step toward formally conveying our common University of Idaho educational and community goals. The Statement articulates the community we aspire to be, expresses our shared values, unites us as Vandals, and encourages collaboration with faculty, staff and the administration.
We come together as Vandals, a diverse community embracing individuality and striving for equity. We hold each other accountable to conduct ourselves with integrity and honesty, to foster excellence in education both in and outside the classroom, and to treat each other with respect.
C. JURISDICTION. Disciplinary action may be taken for (1) any violation of local ordinances, state or federal law; (2) on campus conduct that violates the Student Code of Conduct; and (3) off campus conduct that violates the Student Code of Conduct and that adversely affects the university community or the pursuit of the university's educational mission, process, or function, as determined by the Dean of Students. Students may be subject to civil and criminal penalties in addition to any university sanctions for the same violation. University proceedings may occur before, during, or after any civil or criminal actions are concluded and are not subject to challenge based on the action or inaction of any non-university authorities.
