In response to numerous inquiries and uncertainties by students regarding disciplinary penalties for unacceptable behavior, the following list contains examples for which suspension from the university is the expected penalty:<
- Possession of guns or knives on University Property.
- Altercations in which guns, knives, bats, chains, etc. are used.
- Fighting by individuals or groups.
- Physical abuse of any person (i.e. rape, including acquaintance rape; boyfriend/girlfriend disputes, etc).
- Theft or vandalism in the felony category.
- Use and/or possession of drugs (intent to sell drugs).
- Hazing by an individual or a group either on or off campus.
- Plagiarism, cheating, and academic integrity issues.
- Any authorized emergencies (i.e. refusal to comply with fire / tornado / natural disaster drills).
Other violations listed in the Student Handbook may also result in suspension. Disciplinary action may be taken regardless of whether violations occur on or off campus.
We believe that ALL UT Martin Students deserve to be as free as possible from the behavior described above in order to achieve their educational goals. Procedural due process will be followed.
The complete list of Standards of Conduct for UT Martin Students is published in the Student Handbook.
