Student Conduct

Student Conduct Philosophy

Learning and personal development are integral to the educational mission of UWM.  The student conduct process is one of many tools that UWM uses to foster personal development and maintain the safety of the University community.  We do this by engaging students in challenging conversations about ethical decision-making, responsibility and integrity in our student conduct process.  We uphold students’ rights through a fair and impartial process. 

 All members of UWM are responsible for their conduct and assume reasonable responsibility for reporting inappropriate behavior of others. When students violate rules, campus conduct processes are used to help hold students accountable.  The UW Board of Regents has designated certain kinds of conduct to be reviewed and disciplined by UWM.  The code of conduct applies to both on-campus and off-campus behavior.
