The Student Code of Conduct

Students have an important role in the creation of a University Community which enables the enjoyment of education by all members. This Code of Conduct sets outs the expectations of behaviour that students should abide by. Students are expected to make themselves familiar with the Code.

Behavior that occurs on property owned or controlled by the university, in university online environments and classes, or at activities sponsored by or authorized by the university, is subject to university student conduct review and disciplinary action by the university. The Code of Conduct may also apply to behavior that occurs off campus when it may present a potential danger or threat to the health and safety of others or may reasonably lead to a hostile environment on campus. Disciplinary action may be initiated by the MIUC and sanctions imposed against any student or student organization found responsible of committing, attempting to commit, or intentionally assisting in the commission of the following category of conduct prohibited by the Code:
