                                PROCESS
                       JUDICIAL PROCESS

The university has established regulations for student conduct in order to promote an environment
conducive to learning. Students are responsible for complying with all federal and state laws and university
regulations. See the Student Code of Conduct in this handbook for details.

              o    Examples of violations include, but
                   are not limited to: academic dishonesty,
                    plagiarism, possession of firearms;
                    fireworks; or drugs, unauthorized
                   alcohol use, hazing, and fighting.



Academic Dishonesty is…

Any form of cheating, plagiarism, falsifying of
research data, or assisting another student in
cheating. These incidents, if you are found
guilty, usually result in suspension!


What Happens After an Alleged Violation?

 o       If a violation is reported, the student
         will meet with the director of Student
         Judicial Services and, depending on the
         violation, may also have to appear before
          the Student Judicial Council.

 o       The Student Judicial Council is a group
         of student peers who meet to determine
         guilt and to recommend penalties if the student is found guilty of the infraction.

 o       If a student is determined responsible for a particular infraction, depending on its seriousness, he
         or she may be given a warning, put on probation, or suspended/expelled from the university. For a
         complete list of sanctions, refer to Section II of the Code of Conduct, found in this handbook.

 o       Suspension is for at least one semester and may be more. A suspended student loses all the work
         for that semester as well as all money and fees paid. Expulsion is for an indefinite period of time
         and could be forever.

 o       The Office of Student Judicial Services as well as the ASUN Legal Referral Service are available to
         help students who find themselves in need of assistance with a university judicial situation or
         other legal problem.

Scheduling Tips:
♦ To graduate in four years, students should
    enroll in approximately 16 credits per
    semester.

♦   A minimum of 12 credits is required to be
    considered a full-time student (this is
    important for scholarships and financial
    aid).

♦   Students who work 20-40 hours per week
    should consider taking fewer credits (12
    or less) depending on the number of hours
    they work.

♦   Allow 2-3 hours outside of class for
    homework and study time for each hour

 As your student government, the Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) is an integral part of the
university community. ASUN is recognized by the University president and the Board of Regents and provides
many activities, events and services for students. For example, ASUN uses the profits from the ASUN Bookstore
to offer more than $30,000 annually in scholarship monies, buy equipment for student use, and improve student
facilities. All undergraduates are members of ASUN and are eligible to attend events and/or use services.
  The ASUN Student Government is comprised of three branches - judicial, executive and legislative. Elected or
appointed undergraduate students fill all positions. Elections are held each March for elected positions and
appointments are made on an on-going basis throughout the year. For more information on any of the areas of
student government, please visit our website at www.asun.unr.edu, call 784-6589, or visit our offices in the Jot
Travis Student Union (JTSU) beside the Information Center.

                                      CONDUCT AND POLICIES
INTRODUCTION
The University of Nevada, Reno is committed to an orderly learning environment for all members of the campus
community. As students participate in the campus community and its sponsored activities they are responsible for
their own actions and subject to local, state and national laws as well as the all university regulations.

In order to maintain an academic climate conducive to each member’s success in the pursuit and transmission of
knowledge, the university has established a set of policies and standards for all of its members to follow. The
university regulations and policies presented on the following pages include expectations for the conduct of
individual students as well as student organizations. Also included are university procedures that exist to ensure due
process, to support the rights of all students on campus and to educate students about the importance of community
based resolution of misconduct.

SCOPE OF THE DOCUMENT
The prohibited conduct, procedures and sanctions established in this document are applicable to the resolution of
charges against all students at the University of Nevada, Reno for allegedly engaging in specified prohibited
conduct. Except as otherwise provided in the University and Community College System of Nevada Code (UCCSN
Code) and in these regulations, the University of Nevada School of Medicine may establish written policies,
procedures and sanctions for the discipline of its students that may be used in lieu of those found in this document.
Regulations established by the university apply to both students and student organizations at activities on campus
and at university and organizational sponsored events off campus.

Individual student conduct alleged to have violated both university regulations and civil or criminal law may be
handled concurrently through university disciplinary proceedings and through the courts. Action by the university
shall go forward regardless of other possible or pending administrative, civil or criminal proceedings arising out of
the same or other charges. The person filing the complaint may choose to file charges against the student in both
arenas: internally, through the university student judicial system, or externally, through the legal system.

EMERGENCY AUTHORITY
The president may order the immediate removal from campus of a student for an interim period pending a hearing
whenever the president determines that the removal is required in order:

     1.   To protect life, limb or property; or
     2.   To ensure the maintenance of order.

Any student so removed shall be afforded an opportunity to a hearing no later than 10 university working days
following the emergency removal unless the student agrees to delay the hearing to a later time. The hearing shall
be held under the hearing procedures established in Section 6.9 of the University and Community College System
of Nevada Code, so far as can be made applicable, and by a general hearing officer as established in Section 6.10 of
the University and Community College System of Nevada Code. The president’s decision upon the hearing
officer’s recommendation shall be final. The issue shall be limited to whether the continued removal of the
individual is warranted pending the outcome of a disciplinary hearing. During the time of the removal, the student
may not come onto university property for any reason other than meeting with the appropriate official regarding
the hearing. The charges of misconduct related to the emergency removal shall be made against the student and
resolution of the charges shall take place according to the judicial procedures established in this code.

SECTION I: STUDENT JUDICIAL CODE

Subsection C: University of Nevada, Reno Policies
In addition to prohibited behaviors outlined in Subsections A and B, students and student organizations have a

     2. A request may also be made for alcoholic beverages at activities sponsored by campus departments or
           guests using university facilities. Approval of alcohol requests will take into consideration the nature of
           the activity, number of underage participants, value of alcohol to the purpose of the activity, and
           security measures in place.
     3. Alcoholic beverages must not be served in association with academic classes (e.g. in-class celebrations
           after final exams).

For activities where alcohol is being requested, the following procedure must be followed:

Student Tailgating Policy
The University of Nevada, Reno recognizes that athletic events are an important component of a student’s
experience and we support game day activities that build community and offer an opportunity for social interaction.
To meet this goal, the University has designated the southeast side of the Intramural Field as the student tailgating
area.

In order to secure this area for student tailgating, Parking Services will place barriers at the entrances
of the parking lot the evening preceding the home game. Signs will indicate that the area is reserved
for STUDENT TAILGATING. At all home games ASUN will provide nonalcoholic beverages and food at
no cost to students. Entertainment may also be provided. Security will be provided as approved by the
Student Events Advisory Board.

Dumpsters will be readily available and provided by Buildings and Grounds. Adequate portable restroom facilities
will be supplied for the student tailgating area.

The ASUN and the university do not condone underage drinking, binge drinking, inappropriate public behavior or
any misconduct prohibited by university policy. In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for tailgating,
students are expected to comply with the following regulations:

     1.   The student tailgating area will open for setup at 3.5 hours prior to kickoff at which time Parking
          Services will remove the barriers. Students and student organizations are not allowed to move barriers
          nor are they to set up early. Tailgating hours for participants will begin 3 hours prior to kickoff and
          end 30 minutes prior to the start of the game. Students who refuse to leave will be escorted out of the
          area by police or security and will be referred to Student Judicial Affairs.
     2.   Students under the age of 21 will not be permitted to drink alcohol in accordance with state and federal
          laws and university policy.
     3.   Students 21 years of age and older wishing to drink alcoholic beverages in the student tailgating area must
          present a valid ID and obtain a wristband at a table located in the area. Students without a wristband will
          not be allowed to possess or consume alcoholic beverages.
     4.  Gross, disruptive behavior, disorderly conduct and excessive alcohol consumption will not be tolerated.
         Enforcement of appropriate and lawful behavior will be a high priority.
     5. Glass containers, kegs and beer bongs are not permitted in the designated student tailgating area.
     6. Students and student organizations must clean up their own areas before leaving and must place ALL
         trash in the dumpsters or recycle bins provided in the area.
     7. All furniture must be registered at the entrance of the tailgate area and must be removed at the end of the
         tailgating period (30 minutes prior to the start of the game).
     8. Flipside Productions will provide all entertainment in the student tailgate area. Any group wishing to co-
         sponsor entertainment must contact Flipside at 784-6589.
     9. In order to minimize congestion within the tailgating area, private vehicles will be limited to a capacity
         of one half the parking lot and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
     10. Any student found in violation of the above regulations will be cited and/or referred to Student Judicial
         Affairs. Student organizations found in violation will be referred to both Student Judicial Affairs and/or
         the ASUN for sanctioning. Individuals and student organizations are subject to sanctions as outlined in
         the Student Judicial Code and the Clubs and Organization bylaws. In addition, ASUN and the university
         reserve the right to ban students and student organizations from future tailgate activities.

                  ASUN and the University remind students to be safe and responsible
                                toward alcohol and to NOT drink and drive!!!
Hazing
Hazing has no place within a community of scholars. The Board of Regents of the University and Community
College of Nevada (UCCSN) affirms its opposition to any form of hazing.

UCCSN institutions advocate civility in society and an adherence to the fundamental principles of honesty,
integrity, respect, fairness, development of the individual character, and sensitivity to the dignity of all persons.
These principles should be fostered and nurtured in a broad spectrum of activities that yield social, intellectual and
physical benefits. Therefore hazing of any nature is unacceptable at any public institution of higher education in
the State of Nevada.

     1.   No member or alumnus of the UCCSN community acting as an individual or part of a group shall conduct
          or condone hazing activities.
     2.   Hazing is defined as any method of initiation into or prerequisite to becoming a member of the community
          college or university community, or any group associated therewith, engaged in by an individual that
          intentionally or recklessly endangers another individual. Any activity upon which the initiation into or
          affiliation with an organization or group is directly or indirectly conditioned shall be presumed to be
          forced activity, the willingness of a individual to participate in such activity notwithstanding. Hazing
          may occur on or off the premises of the organization and/or educational institution. Hazing is most
          often seen as an initiation rite into a student organization or group, but may occur in other situations.
     3.   Hazing activities may include, but are not limited to:
                a.    Any physical activity, such as whipping, beating, branding, forced calisthenics, exposure to
                      the elements, forced consumption of food, liquor, drugs or other substance or any other brutal
                      treatment or other forced physical activity that is likely to adversely affect the physical
                      health of the person.
                b.    Any situation which subjects the individual to extreme stress, such as sleep deprivation, forced
                      exclusion from social contact, required participation in public stunts, or forced conduct which
                      produces pain, physical discomfort, or adversely affects the mental health or dignity of an
                      individual.
                c.    Any expectations or commands that force individuals to engage in an illegal act and/or willful
                      destruction or removal of public or private property.
     4.   Each institution within NSHE shall develop clear procedures for dealing with hazing, requirements for
          reporting hazing, clear reporting lines for infractions, investigation procedures, and potential discipline.
          Each institution shall apply a reasonable person standard, and the discipline shall be proportionate to the
          infraction. All disciplinary actions or sanctions shall be congruent with Chapter 6 of the code and
          appropriate bylaws. Both individuals and organizations committing an offense under this anti-hazing
          policy may be found in violation and be subject to appropriate disciplinary sanctions.
     5.   An allegation of hazing, reporting of a suspicion that hazing may have occurred, or a request for an
          investigation of hazing may be initiated by anyone. Campus policies shall designate the appropriate
          place and method of reporting. Each campus is encouraged to develop an educational program about the
          serious danger and risk involved in any hazing activity and the subsequent harm that can occur to both
          the individual subjected to hazing and those engaged in hazing.
     6.   Each campus shall develop procedures and policies to report cases of hazing that fall under Nevada
          Revised Statutes.

To report an allegation of hazing, please contact the Office of Student Judicial Mediation and Advocacy Services,
Clark Administration Building, Lake Level, 784-4388. All investigations of hazing and procedures for adjudication
shall follow Section II of the University Code of Conduct.

Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is defined as any sexual penetration against the will of the victim or under conditions in which the
perpetrator knows or should know that the victim is mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding
the nature of his conduct. Sexual assault is considered against another person’s will even if that person is:
unconscious, asleep, drugged, intoxicated or mentally unstable.

Any student found responsible for acts of sexual assault within the university community will be subject to
disciplinary action. A victim of sexual assault should report the incident and seek the appropriate attention
(medical care, emotional support, judicial action) from the campus or community agencies offering resources
(health care, counseling center, police department, student judicial services, Sexual Assault Prevention and Counseling
Program (SAPAC), Reno Crisis Center and other agencies). A student need not officially report an incident in order
to be provided assistance. Reports may be confidential, based upon the student’s desires.

Sexual Harassment
It is the policy of the University of Nevada that the sexual harassment of students, employees and users of
university facilities is unacceptable and prohibited. This stance is consistent with the university’s efforts to
maintain equal educational opportunity, and nondiscrimination in programs, services and use of facilities.

As defined by Board of Regents Policy, Title 4, Chapter 8, Section 13, unwelcome sexual advances, requests for
sexual favors, and other visual, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when:

     1.   submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s
          employment or academic status;
     2.   submission to or rejection of the conduct is used as a basis for academic or employment decisions or
          evaluations, or permission to participate in an activity; or
     3.   the conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s academic or work
          performance, or of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment in which to work or learn.

Sexual harassment may take many forms—subtle and indirect, or blatant an overt. For example,
              •    It may occur between individuals of the opposite sex or of the same sex.
              •    It may occur between students, between peers and/or co-workers, or between individuals in an
                   unequal power relationship.
              •    It may be aimed at coercing an individual to participate in an unwanted sexual relationship or
                   it may have the effect of causing an individual to change behavior or work performance.
              •    It may consist of repeated actions or may even arise from a single incident if sufficiently
                   severe.
              •    It may also rise to the level of a criminal offense, such as battery or sexual assault.

Complaint Procedure
Complaints of sexual harassment must be filed within one hundred eighty (180) calendar days after the discovery
of the alleged act of sexual harassment. The complaint should be filed with the supervisor, department chair, dean,
affirmative action officer or the director of faculty human resources.

     1.   A student who believes that he or she has been subjected to sexual harassment by anyone is encouraged—
          but it is neither necessary nor required—to promptly tell the person that the conduct is unwelcome and
          ask the person to stop the conduct. A person who receives such a request must immediately comply with
          it and must not retaliate against the student for rejecting the conduct.
     2.   The student may also choose to file a complaint with his or her major department chair, who will in turn
          immediately contact one of the officials listed above.
     3.   If the student feels uncomfortable about discussing the incident with the department chair, the student
          should feel free to bypass the chair and file a complaint with one of the above officials or to any chair
          or dean, who will in turn immediately contact one of the officials listed above to forward the complaint,
          whether or not the complaint is in writing, to discuss it and/or to report the action taken. The chair or
          dean has a responsibility to act even if the individuals are not supervised by that chair or dean.

For a complete copy of the UCCSN Policy on Sexual Harassment, please refer to Board of Regents Policy, Title
4, Chapter 8, Section 13.

Policy on Use of Manzanita Lake
Any use of Manzanita Lake is prohibited, including, but not limited to swimming, diving, or any activity using rafts,
boats or other floatation devices.

Any student found in violation of this policy will be sanctioned under the Student Judicial Code.

Use of Skateboards and Rollerblades on University Property
It is the policy of the University of Nevada, Reno to prohibit the use of skateboards, rollerblades or similar types
of equipment within university buildings. Faculty, staff, students or visitors using skateboards, rollerblades or

pedestrians.

Unsupervised recreational use of skateboards, rollerblades or similar types of equipment on university property is
prohibited. Organizers of any scheduled recreational event using such equipment shall file a valid certificate of
insurance with the Scheduling Services office prior to the date of the event.

Individuals shall be held responsible for damage caused to university property as a result of the improper operation
of skateboards, rollerblades or similar types of equipment on the university campus. Individuals shall be held
responsible for injuries to themselves or others as a result of the improper operation of such equipment on
university property.

Individuals are also subject to Reno Municipal Code, Section 6.06.020 as follows:

     a.   No person upon rollerskates, roller blades, skateboards or riding in or by means of any coaster, toy
          vehicle or similar device, shall go upon any roadway except while crossing a street on a crosswalk and
          when so crossing such person shall be granted all the rights and shall be subject to all of the duties
          applicable to pedestrians. This section shall not apply upon any street while set aside as a play street as
          authorized by RMC 6.06.095.
     b.   It is unlawful for any person to use a skateboard, coaster, roller skates, roller blades, or any similar device
          upon any public property that is posted with reference to this section.
     c.   It is unlawful for any person, where such use is permitted, to use a skateboard, coaster, roller skates, roller
          blades, or any similar device in a careless, negligent, or dangerous manner on a street, sidewalk, or other
          public property within the city.

Standards of Conduct for the Use of University Computers
Improper conduct regarding computer use at the university falls into three categories: (1) academic dishonesty; (2)
disruption and destruction of computer facilities; and (3) violation of licenses and copyright agreements, university
policy, and state or federal laws.

1. Academic Dishonesty
Academic dishonesty is covered in Section IV of this handbook. Examples of this type of behavior regarding
computers include, but are not limited to:
      a.   Submitting another person’s programs, documentation or program results as your own work;
      b.   Obtaining or attempting to obtain unauthorized access to information stored in electronic form;
      c.   Submitting false results of a program’s output for a class assignment or falsifying the results of program
           execution for the purpose of improving a grade.
2. Disruption or Destruction of Computer Facilities
The disruption or destruction of computer facilities is covered in Subsection B (18) of this handbook. Examples of
this type of behavior include, but are not limited to:
      a.   Damaging or stealing university-owned equipment or software;
      b.   Sending of offensive mail;
     c.   Causing the display of false system messages;
     d.   Maliciously causing system slowdowns or rendering systems inoperable;
     e.   Changing, removing or destroying (or attempting the same) any data stored electronically without
          proper authorization;
     f.   Gaining or attempting to gain access to accounts without proper authorization;
     g.   Putting viruses or worms into a system.

3. Violation of Licenses and Copyright Agreements
Most software used on university computers is covered by copyright, license or nondisclosure agreements. Violation
of these agreements puts the university and the individual in jeopardy of civil penalties. Examples of such
violations include, but are not limited to:

     a.   Making copies of copyrighted or licensed software without proper authorization;
     b.   Using software in violation of copyright, license or non-disclosure agreements;
     c.   Using university computers for unauthorized private or commercial purposes.

Policy on Registered Sex Offenders
All students, employees and guests of the University of Nevada, Reno who have been convicted of a sex crime as
defined by NRS 179D.410 or crimes against children as defined by NRS 179D.210 must register with the University
of Nevada Police Services, 784-4013, Student Services Building. Information on registered sex offenders who are
students, employees or guests of the university may be obtained by contacting University Police Services at the
number listed above.

University Values and the Exchange of Ideas
The modern land grant university fosters the acquisition of knowledge and the distribution of newly discovered
information. It enlivens curiosity, cultivates critical judgement and encourages the contribution of its informed
students to the development of American society. The University of Nevada, Reno is committed to these land
grant goals and to the maintenance of an academic environment which advances the free exchange of ideas.

While prohibition of certain forms of speech can have a chilling effect on the free and open exchange of ideas, a
policy of civility and tolerance can protect an environment which is free of intimidation to promote open debate.

Personal verbal harassment of one individual by another is uncivil behavior, which can taint or pollute the learning
climate and discourage open expression of ideas on legitimate academic subjects.

The university is committed to an orderly learning environment, which protects the right of free speech and
rejects personal intimidation of any kind.


SECTION II: DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES FOR STUDENTS

Subsection A: Introduction
Students charged with violations of system, university or residence hall regulations may be subject to disciplinary
action. The procedures for carrying out student discipline are based upon those procedures established by the
Nevada System of Higher Education, found in Chapter 6 of the Board of Regents Code. In addition, students
violating the policies and regulations established for social Greek Organizations (for fraternities and sororities) or
residence hall policies and regulations may be subject to sanctions under those programs.

It is the belief of the university that the judicial proceedings should have an educational outcome, while accomplishing
the goal of resolution of the problematic behavior.

Presented in this section are university procedures that exist to ensure due process and to support the rights of all
students.

Subsection B. Procedures

           of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services (and/or staff) and approved by the president.
     3.    If the student wishes to have a hearing, a time must be set up for this hearing which in not less than 10
           college working days from the date that the student is formally notified of the charges of misconduct in
           writing, and notified in person as to the specific hearing body that will hear the case.
     4.     The student has the option of waiving the 10-day time limit to allow for a speedier resolution of the
           charges. This waiver must be obtained in writing from the student.

           public.
     6.      The student may request an extension of time beyond the 10-day time span set for notification of the
           hearing and the established hearing date. This request may be made to the chairperson of the hearing
           body, or to the Director of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services (and/or staff). This
           request will be considered if based upon good and compelling reasons as determined by the chairperson or
           the director. The possibility of other administrative, civil or criminal proceedings against the student is
           not considered such a reason, unless a time conflict between the university hearing or required meeting
           exists.
     7.      The student has the right to request that a copy be made of the tape recording of the hearing, to be made
           at the expense of the student and under the supervision of the Director of Student Judicial, Mediation and
           Advocacy Services (and/or staff). While the student may not make a separate tape recording of the
           hearing, the student may provide for a certified court reporter. The transcript of the hearing that is
           developed by the court reporter shall be made available to the president upon the president’s request and
           at the institution’s expense.
     8.      The student has the right to have an adviser present at a university hearing who may act on the student’s
           behalf. The student must give written notice of the name and address of the adviser to the Director of
           Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services (and/or staff) prior to five college working days
           before the hearing date. If the adviser is an attorney, the director (and/or staff) will coordinate the
           university’s preparation for the case to allow for the general counsel for the system to arrange for an
           attorney for the system to serve as adviser to the director (and/or staff) in the hearing.

Subsection C: Sanctions
Disciplinary sanctions are those actions imposed by a judicial hearing officer or board as a consequence for
misconduct under the student judicial code or other university policies. The purpose of a sanction, in addition to
protecting others, is primarily to educate an individual by increasing his or her awareness of the consequences of
conduct violations and the importance of responsibility to the university community for one’s actions. Educational
activities may be assigned to the student as a condition of his/her successful resolution of the misconduct. The
educational purpose of sanctioning will ordinarily be the guiding force behind imposition of sanctions by the
university judicial system. In some instances, however, the community’s need to properly function outweighs the
university’s ability to so educate an individual. In such a case, for the benefit of both the student and the
community, suspension or expulsion from the university may result.

The following is a summary of the types of disciplinary sanctions that may be imposed on a student found
responsible for violations of regulations found in this code. Please note: Students found responsible for violating
university academic standards may be subject to additional sanctions as outlined in Section IV and student organizations
may be subject to sanctions outlined in Section V.
          1.   Warning. Notice, oral or written, that continuation or repetition of prohibited conduct may be
               the cause for more severe disciplinary action.
          2.   Reprimand. A formal censure or severe reproof administered in writing to a person engaging in
               prohibited conduct.
          3.   Restitution. The requirement to reimburse the legal owners for a loss due to defacement, damage,
               fraud, theft or misappropriation of property. The failure to make restitution shall be the cause
               for more severe disciplinary action.
          4.   Probation. Probation consists of a trial period not exceeding one year in which the conduct of
               the student will be evaluated in terms of whether any prohibited acts are committed. Probation
               may include exclusion from participation in privileged or extracurricular activities of the
               university. The person placed on probation shall be notified, in writing, that the commission of
               prohibited acts will lead to more severe disciplinary sanctions. The official transcript of the
               student on probation may be marked “DISCIPLINARY PROBATION” for the period of the
               probation and any exclusions may also be noted. Parents or legal guardians of minor
               students shall be notified of the action.
          5.   Suspension.
          a.   Exclusion for a definite period of time from attending classes and from participating in other
               activities of the System, as set forth in a written notice to the student. The official transcript of
               the student shall be marked “DISCIPLINARY SUSPENSION EFFECTIVE ____ TO _____.”
               Parents or legal guardians of minor students shall be notified of the action.
          b.   A student who is not currently enrolled in the System and who was not registered during the
               previous semester or who graduated at the end of the previous semester may request that the
               notation of the disciplinary suspension be removed from the official transcript when two years
               have elapsed since the expiration of the student’s suspension. Such request must be submitted in
               writing to the president. If the request is not granted, the student at yearly intervals thereafter
               may submit a request for removal of the notation.
          6.   Expulsion
               Termination of student registration and status for an indefinite period of time. Permission of
               the president shall be required for readmission. The official transcript of the student shall be
               marked “DISCIPLINARY EXPULSION EFFECTIVE _______.” The parents or legal
               guardians of minor students shall be notified of the action.

Subsection D: Types of Hearings
There are three types of hearings that may be held as per the decision of the associate vice president for Student
Life Services. Factors that may be considered in determining the type of hearing include (a) the need for
confidentiality of the student charged or a victim involved in a violation; or (b) the sensitive nature of the incident.
Types of hearings are as follows:

     1.  A hearing before a General Hearing Officer. The president shall designate one or more general hearing
         officers who shall serve for terms as determined by the president. Office hearings by a general hearing
         officer shall be informal in nature and subject to such procedures as the president may determine. Once
         a hearing is held, a recommendation shall be made to the associate vice president as soon as is reasonably
         possible, but no later than 6 months after the filing of the complaint.
    2. Institutional Hearing Committee. This type of hearing is held before the ASUN Judicial Council, a panel
         of graduate students, or a combined panel of students and faculty. In cases involving undergraduates,
         when a combined panel is used, student members shall generally be members of the ASUN Judicial
         Council. In cases where graduate students are charged, student members shall be recommended by the
         Graduate Student Association. Faculty members shall generally be appointed by the Faculty Senate. An
         institutional hearing committee shall also be used to hear appeals of all lower hearing bodies, i.e.
         Residence Hall Judicial Board, Greek Standards Board, and others.
    3. Special Hearing Officer and Special Hearing Committee. Special hearing officers shall be attorneys who
         have been members of the State Bar of Nevada for at least 5 years or who are otherwise qualified by
         professional experience in presiding at judicial or quasi-judicial adversary proceedings. They will not
         hold any employment or other contractual relationship with any UCCSN institution during the period of
         their service. Special hearing committee members shall be selected by the Faculty Senate.
Subsection E: Other Regulations Governing Hearings

1. Advisors/Attorneys
The student charged may be accompanied by one advisor of the student’s choice, who may act on the person’s
behalf. The student charged must give written notice of the name and address of the advisor, and whether the
advisor is an attorney, to the director of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services no later than 5 college
working days before the time set for the hearing. An advisor will not be permitted at the hearing without such
notice. The advisor does not speak during the hearing, but is introduced for the record, and is included with the
student in all written communication. The advisor may:
       a.    have access, per the wishes of the student, to the hearing information, witness statements, hearing
             documents submitted to the hearing officer or board for the hearing, and access to staff for questions,
             clarifications, etc.;
       b.    prepare the presentation with their student for the hearing and/or the appeal process. The advisor is
             encouraged to support their student in preparing everything (written letter, oral presentation, etc.) in
             his/her own words and from his/her perspective;
       c.    be present with the student throughout the hearing and may sit next to the student and provide advice
             to him/her;
       d.    be afforded breaks during the hearing at the request of the student in order to confer privately.
2. Closed Hearings
All hearings are scheduled as closed sessions, unless the student requests for the hearing to be open to the public.
3. Consolidated Hearings
When more than one person is charged with prohibited conduct arising out of a single occurrence, or out of
multiple occurrences, a single hearing may be held for all the persons charged. Students may request that their cases
be consolidated with others or separated from others. If no request is made by the student, the director shall make
the determination regarding consolidation.
4. Absence of the Person Charged
If the student charged does not appear at a hearing without satisfactory explanation for the absence, or should the
person charged leave the hearing before its conclusion, the hearing shall proceed without the person charged and
the hearing officer or hearing board may make findings of fact and recommendations on sanctions. The fact that
an administrative hearing or a civil or criminal trial for the student charged is pending shall not be considered a
satisfactory explanation for absence unless the actual hearing or trial date conflicts with a date for a hearing held
under this code, or unless it is physically impossible for the person charged, through no fault of that person, to
attend a hearing held under this chapter.
5. Hearings to be Recorded
As described in Subsection C above, A tape recording will be made of the hearing and kept for at least one year
before being destroyed, unless the matter is brought before the courts during which time the recording will be kept
until the matter is decided in the courts. A tape recording of a closed hearing shall be confidential. The person
charged, on request of and at the charged person’s expense may have or, under supervision may make, a copy of
such recording. No tape recording by the person charged or by other persons at the hearing will be permitted. The
person charged may, at the charged person’s expense, provide for a certified court reporter. A copy of the court
reporter’s transcript shall also be made available to the president upon the president’s request and at the university’s
expense.

SECTION IV: ACADEMIC STANDARDS
Introduction
Specific to the academic pursuits of students, the University of Nevada, Reno, believes the maintenance of
academic standards is a joint responsibility of the students and faculty of the university. Freedom to teach and to
learn are dependent upon individual and collective conduct to permit the pursuit and exchange of knowledge and
opinion. Faculty have the responsibility to create an atmosphere in which students may display their knowledge.
This atmosphere includes an orderly testing room and sufficient safeguards to inhibit dishonesty. Students have the
responsibility to rely on their knowledge and resources in the evaluation process. The trust developed in the
maintenance of academic standards is necessary to the fair evaluation of all students.

Undergraduate Academic Standards:
Class Conduct: A student may be dropped from class at any time for negligence or misconduct, upon recommendation
of the instructor and with approval of the college dean. Students may also be dropped for non-attendance upon
indication of the instructor.

Subsection A: Definitions
Academic dishonesty is against university as well as the system community standards. Academic dishonesty
includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Plagiarism: defined as submitting the language, ideas, thoughts or work of another as one’s own; or assisting in the
act of plagiarism by allowing one’s work to be used in this fashion.
Cheating: defined as (1) obtaining or providing unauthorized information during an examination through verbal,
visual or unauthorized use of books, notes, text and other materials; (2) obtaining or providing information
concerning all or part of an examination prior to that examination; (3) taking an examination for another student,
or arranging for another person to take an exam in one’s place; (4) altering or changing test answers after submittal
for grading, grades after grades have been awarded, or other academic records once these are official.

Subsection B: Sanctions for Violation of Academic Standards
Sanctions for violations of university academic standards may include the following: (1) filing a final grade of “F”;
(2) awarding a failing mark on the test or paper in question; (3) requiring the student to retake the test or resubmit
the paper. [A student failed in a course due to academic dishonesty may not utilize the “repeat option” for that
course.] A student may also be subject to discipline for academic dishonesty pursuant to the provisions of the Board
of Regents Code, Title 2, Chapter 6.

Subsection C: Academic Dishonesty Procedures
Procedure for Undergraduate Students
A faculty member who suspects an undergraduate student of academic dishonesty must notify the student of the
charge and proposed sanction, in writing, no later than ten (10) calendar days after the alleged action or ten (10)
calendar days after the last day of instruction, whichever comes first.

Notification must be hand delivered or sent by certified mail. A copy of the notification to the student must be sent
to the director of Student Judicial, Mediation, and Advocacy Services. The student has ten (10) calendar days to
appeal after receipt of the notification.

     1.   If the student admits guilt, or fails to appeal, the faculty member may impose an academic sanction
          commensurate with the offense. In addition, the director of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy
          Services may impose an appropriate disciplinary sanction.
          a. If the student accepts the sanctions the matter is ended.
          b. If the student appeals the sanction insofar as it affects the final grade, the grade appeal process
               may be invoked. Students may appeal a final grade by filing an Intent to Appeal a Grade form
               with the appropriate department chair within 35 calendar days of issuance of official grades by
               the registrar. Students who do not file the proper forms within the specified deadline forfeit
               the right to appeal the grade. Students who wish to appeal a disciplinary sanction may do so
               through the director of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services. (If the alleged
               dishonesty occurs during the summer session and the student cannot be located, the appeals
               date will be extended to the last day of late registration in the next regular semester.)
     2.   If the student denies the charge, the student must state this, in writing, to the chair of the department
          within the ten (10) calendar days noted above. Within the next five calendar days, the chair must inform
          the faculty member, then refer the matter to the director of Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy
          Services for a hearing by the Academic Integrity Board. The student should be allowed at least ten (10)
          calendar days to prepare for a hearing; but this period may be waived by the student.
          a.    If the Academic Integrity Board determines the student to be responsible as charged, it may
                recommend disciplinary sanctions to the director of Student Judicial Services for implementation,
                if appropriate. In any case, the faculty member is so apprised and may            then impose an
                academic sanction consistent with the offense. The student has no further appeal rights except of
                a sanction that affects a final grade as noted above.
          b.    If the Academic Integrity Board finds the student not responsible, the matter is closed.

possible conflict of interest:
     1. Two undergraduate students appointed from the ASUN Judicial Council,
     2. Two faculty members selected by the executive board of the Faculty Senate, and,
     3. A third faculty member selected by the provost, who will serve as chair of the board.
          To ensure the impartiality of the hearing board, members must be appointed from departments other
          than those in which the case originated and in which the accused student is majoring.

B. Impanelment Deadline – The board shall be impaneled by the director of Student Judicial, Mediation and
Advocacy Services and set a hearing date within 21 calendar days after the matter has been referred to the director.

         also be present, and may be accompanied by an advisor, or by an attorney whenever the student chooses
         such counsel. Please see Section II for further information on advisors and attorneys.
    2. In the hearing, the chair will state the content of the report of alleged academic dishonesty and the
         specific charges made.
    3. The faculty member will appear before the board to present evidence against the student. The chair of
         the board may call other witnesses. The accused student and board members may cross examine.
    4. The student will appear before the board to present evidence on his or her own behalf.
    5. The board members will then meet in closed session to make a final decision.
    6. If the student is found to be responsible as charged, the hearing board shall consult with the director of
         Student Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services about any past record of academic misconduct.
    7. The hearing board then shall recommend appropriate disciplinary sanctions to the director of Student
         Judicial, Mediation and Advocacy Services (if appropriate) and apprise the faculty member of its
         deliberations.

SECTION VI: PROGRAMS AND POLICIES THAT SUPPORT INDIVIDUAL STUDENT RIGHTS AND
PROMOTE A HEALTHY AND SAFE LIFESTYLE

A: Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act
The University of Nevada, Reno has joined other colleges and universities across the nation in encouraging the
elimination of alcohol and other drug abuse on our campus and in our community. The university believes that the
unlawful possession or use of drugs, including alcohol, and the abuse of alcohol and any drug by students constitutes
a grave threat to their physical and mental well-being, and significantly impedes the process of learning and
personal development.

We value the student’s right to make his or her own choices. As with any privilege, however, there is a responsibility.
In the case of choosing to drink alcoholic beverages comes the duty of doing so in a manner that is consistent with
the laws of the state and community norms, and which involves respect for the rights of others.

Substance Abuse Policy
The policy adopted by the university prohibits (1) use or possession of alcoholic beverages without authorization;
use or possession of illegal and/or unauthorized drugs and drug paraphernalia; and providing alcoholic beverages to
minors while on university property or at university-sponsored activities, and (2) being under the influence of a
controlled substance, including alcohol, while on university property or at a university-sponsored activity and the
exhibiting of offensive behavior while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances.

Substance Prevention Programs
In order to prevent and reduce alcohol-related problems, and to promote a drug-free and alcohol abuse-free campus,
we have developed a comprehensive substance abuse prevention program, dedicated to the promotion of responsible
and appropriate use of alcoholic beverages through a wide variety of educational activities, which are free to all
participating students.
Peers Educating Peers is a peer education program which uses students to deliver the message about the importance
of making responsible decisions. Peers Educating Peers encompass all aspects of health in a multi-dimensional and
multi-media approach. Although all aspects of wellness are discussed, an emphasis is placed on responsible
decisions regarding alcohol and other drugs. For more information or to schedule a workshop for your group, please
call 784-1537. The Peers and the Coordinator provide the following educational activities, presentations, and
services to individuals and groups:

     •    Identifying the values and attitudes related to drinking alcoholic beverages;
     •    Recognizing personal and societal motives for choosing to drink;
     •    Developing appropriate decision-making skills;
     •    Information regarding the physiological and psychological effects of alcohol and of its potential effects
          on the individual and society;
     •    Up-to-date materials and activities that will enhance the quality of university events where alcoholic
          beverages are sold or available;
     •    Pamphlets, posters, films, and other information on alcohol and other drugs for student use and distribution;
     •    Programs specifically tailored to campus living groups and student organizations, including fraternity
          and sorority chapters and university residence halls;
     •    New Student Orientation programs and classroom presentations for classes, including First Year Experience
          courses;

For more information please call the coordinator of Alcohol & Other Drug Prevention Programs at 784-1537.

Treatment Programs
In addition to the above educational activities and services, the coordinator of Substance Abuse Treatment
programs provides services for: intervention, assessment, and referral counseling for alcohol-drug abuse. The
university offers confidential counseling for students who find that they need assistance with issues involving
alcohol and other drugs. If you would like to speak to a counselor, please call 784-4648 or stop by Thompson
Building 206.

Campus Disciplinary Sanctions
A student involved in violations of university standards of conduct related to alcohol and other drugs will be
required to participate in a judicial intervention process which may include referral to educational programs and/or
an individual needs assessment as a condition of continued association with the institution.

The following judicial sanctions are presented as guidelines, indicating the range and the progression of sanctions—
from educational programs through expulsion. These sanctions are applied on a case-by-case basis, depending on
the specific nature of the student’s alcohol and drug violation. Each student’s case is evaluated in terms of that
student’s level of risk posed (health/danger to self and others) by his or her substance abuse.

A. Alcohol
     1. For violations of campus policy related to possession or use: participation in an educational program,
         including: an education workshop/seminar, a web-based educational program, or a research activity on

Legal Standards
In addition to university student conduct standards, a student will be subjected to all local, state, and federal laws
related to substance abuse or the possession/use of alcohol. The following state laws apply to any student conduct
on or off campus. In these instances, the student is being regarded as a resident of the state of Nevada.
           NRS 202.020
                     Purchase, consumption or possession of alcoholic beverage by a minor: Any person under 21
                     years of age who, for any reason, possesses any alcoholic beverage in public is guilty of a
                     misdemeanor.
           NRS 202.040
                     False representation by a minor to obtain intoxicating liquor. Every minor who shall falsely
                     represent himself to be 21 years of age in order to obtain any intoxicating liquor shall be guilty
                     of a misdemeanor.
           NRS 202.055
                     Sale or furnishing of alcoholic beverage to a minor: aiding a minor to purchase or procure
                     alcoholic beverage. Every person who knowingly sells, gives, or otherwise furnishes an
                     alcoholic beverage to any person under 21 years of age…is guilty of a misdemeanor.
           NRS 205.460
                     Preparation, transfer, or use of false identification regarding persons under 21 years of age;

                     under the age of 21 years who uses or attempts to use or proffers any counterfeited, forged,
                     erased or obliterated card, writing paper, document, or any photocopy print, photostat, or
                     other replica thereof…for the purpose and with the intention of purchasing alcoholic liquor or
                     being served alcoholic liquor…or entering gambling establishments…shall be guilty of a
                     misdemeanor.

Legal Sanctions
Legal action provides for sanctions ranging from the imposition of fines to incarceration. Legal sanctions are
governed by the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS). Such penalties result from the referral of an alcohol or other drug
violation which comes to the attention of the University Police Department, and is referred to the District
Attorney’s Office. Legal action may take place concurrently with campus disciplinary action.

Policy on Parental Notification for Violations of Alcohol Regulations
The university may notify the parents or legal guardians of students under the age of 21 who have violated any
federal, state, or local law, or any rule or policy of the institution governing the use or possession of alcohol or a
controlled substance.

B. Religious Holiday Observation
It is the policy of the UCCSN to be sensitive to the religious obligations of its students. Any student missing classes,
quizzes, examinations or any other class or lab work because of the observance of religious holidays shall, whenever
possible, be given an opportunity during that semester to make up the missed work. The make up option will apply
to the religious holiday absence only. It shall be the responsibility of the student to notify the instructor in writing,
according to the policy of the institution offering the class, if the student intends to participate in a religious
holiday which does not fall on state holidays or periods of class recess. This policy shall not apply in the event that
administering the assignment at an alternate time would impose an undue hardship on the instructor or the
institution which could not reasonably have been avoided.

Any student who is denied a make-up option after appropriately notifying the instructor, shall have the right to
appeal that decision through the normal appeal process in place at that institution.

C. Campus Safety and Crime Statistics
Student safety at the University of Nevada, Reno is of utmost importance. We are committed to providing you
with the information, services and programs that will help you to be a knowledgeable participant in basic crime
prevention practices. No amount of police, lighting or electronic security measures can ensure your safety. The
ultimate responsibility for your safety rests with you. Please take advantage of the services and programs available
to you. Use common sense and precautions for your safety on and off campus. Report incidents and cooperate
with investigations when an issue of safety is involved.
How to Report a Crime
When reporting an emergency, crime or suspicious activity at the university, follow these steps:
     •     Dial 911 (If calling from a university office phone, call 9-911)
     •     Give your name and location (state specifically that you are at the university)
     •     Briefly describe the activity you are reporting
     •     Request medical attention, if needed
     •     Remain calm and speak slowly
     •     Stay on the phone until the dispatcher ends the phone call
If possible include:
     •     Description of person(s) and/or motor vehicle involved
     •     Location or direction of travel of suspect(s)
     •     Presence of weapons
For non-emergency situation:
     •     Dial 334-COPS or
     •     Use the online report from the University Police Web Page at www.unr.edu

Suggestions for Personal Safety

Portions of this section on personal protection were compiled by the police department as a service to the
university community. It outlines safety measures that are directed toward students and university personnel in the
workplace, at home and while traveling.

This information has two purposes: it presents measures to help minimize the risk of physical attack, and it is
intended to improve individual awareness of the possibility of attack.

We hope that the combination of “before-the-fact” awareness and the list of suggested preventative actions will
reduce the risks that university students and staff may encounter.

Automobile Travel
The following measures will reduce risks:
     •    It is generally recommended that doors be kept locked and windows be closed during automobile travel.
          When not in use, vehicles should be kept in a locked garage or other area not readily accessible. Locking
          gas caps are recommended, and gas tanks should never be less than half full. When returning to an auto
          that has been parked in a vulnerable area, a walkaround check of hood latch (secure?), exhaust tail pipe
          (obstruction?) and back seat (person hiding?) is recommended.
     •    Be aware of people loitering nearby when parking or returning to a parked car.
     •    Avoid narrow, lonely streets when driving. Stay on main routes. Do not follow vehicles closely. Drive at
          a steady speed. If you are being followed, try not to be overtaken or forced off the road. Take a known
          detour. Be alert for suspicious vehicles both ahead of and behind you.
     •    A flat tire is a danger signal. If possible, stop the vehicle in a safe place off the road.

Keys
       •   Keep a strict check on house keys.
       •   No one should duplicate house keys without permission.
       •   If a key is lost under suspicious circumstances, change locks.
       •   Do not hide keys in obvious hiding places. All adult members of the household should have their own key.

Security While Walking
In order to reduce risks associated with frequent commuting to and from places of business and other locations:
     •     Routes and schedules (both times and days) should be changed regularly.
     •     Traveling alone at late hours on a regular basis should be avoided.
     •     Travel should be routed along well populated and lighted public pathways.
     •     Be cautious in responding to routine requests from strangers, e.g., requests for the time, directions, a
           match, change, etc.
Travel Arrangements
Always advise a family member, friend or work colleague of travel plans, including destination and expected time
of departure and arrival.

These guidelines are inteded to provide an awareness of basic measures to reduce the potential of attacks and to
cope with threats of unstable persons. They are also intended to make university personnel more awared of the
basic precautions to minimize the risks of becoming a victim.
Residential Security
Residential security measures can be effective only if all household members have developed security awareness.
The object of security awareness should not be to instill fear or apprehension, but to make household members alert
to suspicious activities or occurrences. Security awareness can counter threats to individual and family safety.
General guidelines recommended to enhance family security follow:

     •    Lock all doors and windows even when you are going to be out for only a short while.
     •    A stranger should never be allowed to enter a residence. Demand positive identification before permitting
          entry of any unknown person. Use peepholes in doors or other methods of observation prior to opening
          doors. Service or utility personnel should be properly identified prior to entry. If in doubt, do not permit
          entry. Call the local police.
     •    Keep garage doors closed and locked except during entry and exit of vehicles. Automatic garage door
          openers reduce the time that you will be exposed to a threat.
     •    Have local police, emergency and fire department telephone numbers readily available.
     •    Identify a telephone near the residence for alternate use in an emergency. All members of a household
          should be familiar with the telephone’s location and the circumstances under which it should be used.
     •    Household members should communicate their itineraries and schedule changes within the family unit as
          soon as possible. Household members should know each other’s whereabouts at all times. Investigate
          deviations in a timely manner. In order to prevent unnecessary anxiety, notify some member of the
          household when schedule changes occur.
     •    Report to local police the existence of any individuals who do not have an apparent reason for being in
          a residential area, especially if they appear to be observing a residence or following household family
          members. When making a report, note unfamiliar bicycle riders, disabled vehicles, people making
          surveys and other unusual activities.

X The Campus Security Act was amended in 1998. Any marked increase across years or in the revised statistics
from previous years can be accounted for by the fact that the geographic boundaries for reporting were greatly
expanded in 1998, and reporting of drug, alcohol, and weapons violations has also been broadened to include
not only arrests but also disciplinary referrals.

† Indicates the number of reported occurences by or involving students, faculty, staff, campus guests, visitors
and/or the public. These numbers do not include convictions.

* Campus is defined as any building or property within the same contiguous area, owned or controlled by the
institution. This category includes all on-campus incidents, including those listed in the category below, “in
dormitories or other residential facilities.” Therefore, thetwo categories are not cumulative, but duplicative.

** Noncampus is defined as any building or property that is owned or controlled by an institutionally
recognized student organization or a building or property that is used in direct support of or in relation to the
institution’s educational purpose.
*** Public property is defined as property that is adjacent to a facility owned or controlled by the institution.

   Welcome to the residence halls! We’re glad you’ve chosen to make the halls your home, and we
    hope to help you make this an exciting and productive year. This handbook is your essential
     guide to residence hall life - from check-in to checkout. In it, you’ll find information about
       services, facilities, procedures, and regulations. When you signed your housing license
      agreement, you also agreed to abide by the terms of this handbook, which is a part of the
                                   agreement. Please read it carefully!

Residence Hall Staff
The Department of Residential Life, Housing and Food Service is committed to providing services for our residents
that far exceed mere room and board. From the central office to the RAs, the residence life staff operates as a team
to make each resident’s on-campus experience as positive as possible. These trained staff members are available to
assist you with any problems you may have. Here’s who to see if you have any questions or concerns:
Your Resident Assistant (RA) is a full time student who is trained to provide program planning, peer support, and
to help assure policies are observed. Talk to your RA about activities you would like to see happen! RAs are also
excellent resources, as they are very familiar with what is available on campus. Feel free to stop by and say hello.
The front desk in each hall is staffed by an Administrative Aide on weekdays, RA’s and student staff on evenings and
weekends, and a Facility Attendant at night. This is where you report any problems you may have with maintenance
or cleaning. You can also check out a vacuum cleaner or recreation equipment with your student ID. This is the
place to sign in guests and to make an appointment with the Resident Director (RD).
In each front desk, Facility Attendants work in the evenings to assist residents with security, check-ins, and serve
as an information resource. Your Resident Director (RD) is a full-time administrative faculty member who lives on
campus. The Assistant Resident Director (ARD) is a graduate student who supports the full time RD in the
operation and supervision of the hall. The RD and ARD supervise the RAs and desk staff, advise the hall council,
conduct discipline meetings, and offer supportive counseling. They hold office hours during which they are
available for appointments.
The Director, Associate Directors, Assistant Director, and other administrative staff can be contacted in the office
of Residential Life, Housing, and Food Service. This office is also the place to make housing and food service
payments.

Get Involved!
One of the advantages of living on campus is the number of opportunities to get involved. Your hall community
starts with you. While residential life staff is here to assist in community building efforts, your involvement and
ideas will ultimately determine what kind of living environment you will have. The following are just some of the
student leadership opportunities for you to get involved. Please ask the hall staff for information on getting
involved with any of these or other campus programs and organizations.

           activities, committees, and elections.
      •    Join a Fraternity or Sorority (Greek organization). By becoming a member you will be joining a national
           or international social network of people committed to life long friendships, leadership, academics and
           community service.

      •    Attend food committee meetings. Help improve the food service by bringing your constructive
           comments. Residence hall representatives are able to give their input to insure that the food service is
           meeting student’s needs. Contact RHA for more information.

           RA for details.

           basketball, volleyball, and soccer, as well as the ski team, cross country team, swim team, cycling team,
           track team and the boxing club. With all these sports there is something available for everyone.

           in the annual volunteer fair. Some community service projects include teaching adults to read, visiting
           a convalescent hospital, or recycling. You may wish to start your own project.
     •     Bring your ideas to your hall council, RA or RD and get others interested, too.
     •     Apply to be a resident assistant. RAs gain valuable skills and leadership experience, while helping build a
           strong, active residence hall community. Consider joining the team. For additional information, contact
           your RA or RD.

SERVICES AND FACILITIES
Living Options – A Diverse Community Perhaps one of the best opportunities afforded by living on campus is
the chance to meet and interact with a very diverse population of students. Our residence halls are home to
students from a variety of countries, cultures and ethnic groups. College is a time to expand awareness, learn from
and about others and to learn more about yourself. There is perhaps no better way to achieve all of these purposes
than by getting to know other residents who are different from you. Approach relationships with an open mind in
an effort to understand why others are the way they are and think the way they do. As you are a unique individual
who wants to be understood and appreciated for who you are, so is everyone else. Make the most of these
extracurricular educational opportunities and broaden your world! In addition, our seven residence facilities offer
you a variety of living options to choose from. Each building has a unique character and atmosphere, resulting
from its special history, design, and most of all, the students who call it home:

Room Consolidation/ Accidental Privates
The Department of Residential Life, Housing and
Food Service reserves the right to consolidate
vacancies that exist in the residence halls. This
vacancy consolidation process attempts to ensure
that students occupying similar spaces are charged
similar rates. If you lose your roommate and there is
no waiting list for your residence hall room, you
may be contacted by the Residential Life, Housing
and Food Service main office. An assignment may be
made and a student may move in prior to the time a
resident is notified that he or she is receiving a new
roommate. Students occupying a double room and
paying a double room rate may be required, if a
vacancy occurs in the room, to move to another
double room, accept another roommate or pay for
the room as an accidental private. It is the student’s
responsibility to select the desired roommate (another
resident without a roommate) or negotiate who will
move to which room. Students remaining in a room
alone as a result of refusal to move to another room
or to provide a welcoming atmosphere for another
roommate will be charged the guaranteed private
