Student Code of Conduct

The University of Wyoming is an academic community dedicated to teaching, scholarship, research, service, inclusion, and the holistic development of students. As an academic community, the University has an interest in the safety, welfare, and education of the members of this community and in fostering an environment consistent with the educational mission, purpose, and processes of the University. When students voluntarily enter the University, they assume obligations of performance and behavior relevant to the University’s mission, processes, and functions. Expectations of students in an academic community are higher than those of other citizens.

Through the Student Code of Conduct, the Dean of Students Office strives to reduce and prevent behavior that undermines academic success and that negatively detracts from the educational mission of the University; to ensure the health and safety of students and the community; to provide timely support and resources for students; and to prevent violence in and around the University community.  The Student Code of Conduct is administered without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity and expression, political affiliation, age, disability, veteran status, genetic information, or sexual orientation.

If you need clarification of any of its clauses, please do not hesitate to inquire a staff member in the Dean of Students office, Knight Hall Room 128 or call 307-766-3296.
