§6-01.01 - Rationale for University Discipline

The reasonableness of university discipline must be Judged in its relation to the educational purposes of the university.  If those purposes may be described as the pursuit of truth and the advancement of knowledge, university discipline exists to assure a setting wherein those purposes may be achieved.
   
The educational purposes of the university can best be protected through the clear communication and enforcement of certain standards of behavior judged essential to the achievement of those purposes.  What follows is a statement of these standards of behavior developed through the cooperative efforts of the students, faculty, and administrative officers.
