The University of North Dakota welcomes you to its community of more than 15,000 students, faculty, and staff. Our University community is made up of individuals representing the rich diversity and heritage of the populations of North Dakota, the nation, and the world. As an educational institution, the University is ideally suited to the task of making campus life a positive educational experience through the sharing of a multitude of ideas, experiences, life styles, cultures, and beliefs. As part of its mission, the University intends to nurture and sustain a learning environment which permits all to learn from the diversities brought to campus by members of the University community.
The University of North Dakota Code of Student Life outlines the rights and responsibilities enjoyed by the students, faculty, and staff who make up our University community. The purpose of the information contained in the Code is to promote and maintain a learning environment appropriate for an institution of higher education and to serve as a basic guide to help prevent abuse of the rights of others. Members of the University community are expected to be familiar with the rules and regulations contained within the Code and to act in compliance with them at all times. The Code is intended to be a general handbook to give guidance and direction to members of a very diverse University community. It is not possible to cover every conceivable situation that might arise. Specific questions relating to the Code of Student Life and interpretations of specific sections within the Code may be requested by contacting the Dean of Students Office, the Vice President for Student Affairs, or by directly consulting with the Student Policy Committee.
Nothing within the Code of Student Life is intended to limit or restrict freedom of speech or peaceful assembly. General statements of philosophy and principles to which the University subscribes are found in the University of North Dakota Statement of Academic Freedom (approved by the University Senate, February 7, 1963, and endorsed by the State Board of Higher Education, April 29, 1963) and in the Joint Statement on Rights and Freedoms of Students (endorsed by the University Senate, May 2, 1968). The State Board Academic Freedom statement is included as Appendix IIIc. The Code of Student Life is adopted in compliance with a policy statement prepared by the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education in December 1968, and with House Bill 99 (adopted March 13, 1969) by the Legislative Assembly of the State of North Dakota. The aforementioned documents are on file and available for inspection in the Dean of Students Office and the Vice President for Student Affairs Office.
The Code of Student Life is published periodically and is subject to amendment or revision. Members of the University community are encouraged to submit amendments or revisions to the Student Policy Committee (SPC) for consideration. SPC is a standing committee of University Senate. Action taken by SPC is presented to University Senate for final consideration.
