Preamble Statement of Philosophy and Student Rights
The primary purpose for the imposition of discipline in the University setting is to protect the campus
community. Consistent with that purpose, reasonable efforts will be made to foster the personal and social development of those students who are held accountable for violations of University regulations.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with University regulations, the State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) policies, and federal and state laws and local ordinances. Students may be disciplined by the University for violating UND and SBHE standards of conduct even though the students may also be punished by local, state, or federal authorities for the same act. Institutional disciplinary action is not used to duplicate penalties by civil authorities.
In all conduct proceedings it is recognized that the University of North Dakota is an educational institution and not a court of law. Therefore, the concept of fair play will take precedence in all settings and the philosophy of discipline shall be educational in nature. Individuals should discuss their questions and concerns at the lowest level possible for effective resolution of the situation.
A student's/student organization's involvement in the discipline system does not preclude other administrative action from lower levels. Disciplinary incidents may be settled through a discipline meeting with the following goals in mind: (1) assisting the student in confronting the value questions surrounding the behavior; (2) assisting the student in understanding the causes for the behavior; and (3) encouraging the student in understanding the importance of considering in advance the consequences of the undesirable behavior as to make more acceptable decisions in the future.
