The University of Alaska Board of Regents have established a set of rights and responsibilities called the Student Code of Conduct (the Code) that students attending at any of the UA campuses are expected to abide by. Individuals who apply to attend one of the UA campuses, register or enroll in classes, live on campus, or have a continuing educational interest at a UA campus are considered students and are given the rights as well as held to the expectations detailed in the Code.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks has a responsibility to intervene when student behaviors on or off campus impact the campus community, impede, contradict, or are inconsistent with the standards set through the Code, campus rules and policies, the terms and conditions of their housing contract, the University of Alaska Board of Regents Policy and Regulations or federal and state law. The Dean of Students Office works to enhance student accountability through the conduct process. We strive to adjudicate cases of alleged misconduct in a fair, responsible and timely manner emphasizing respect, trust and integrity.
The sanction process should be educational in nature and meet the following objectives:
- Further a student’s development and encourage them to become a positive contributor to the community.
- Discourage a student’s inappropriate behavior from recurring in the future.
- Aid in the student’s learning.
- Assist students in understanding what it means to respect themselves and others in a community environment and to take responsibility for their actions within a community.
- When behaviors pose a threat to others in the community, sanctions may include temporary or permanent removal from the community.
