Underlying our educational mission are basic values that bind students and instructors alike into a community of learners. These values include an expectation for intellectual honesty; the fostering of mutual trust; the expression of respect to earn its reciprocation; regard for another's freedom of speech, thought and belief; freedom of inquiry; joy in learning; freedom from discrimination; and a rejection of all forms of intimidation, harassment, disruption or violence aimed at or resulting in limiting these freedoms, or interfering with a student's, instructor's or staff member's performance of his or her University responsibilities.

This policy describes the sanctions and disciplinary action to which a student is subject should his or her conduct violate or otherwise willfully disregard these fundamental values, and thereby prevent effective learning and teaching from taking place.
