Under the direction of the president, the dean of students is primarily responsible for the administration of student discipline.
General statement. Students at the University neither lose the rights nor escape the responsibilities of citizenship. They are expected to obey and conduct themselves in accordance with the penal and civil statutes of the local, state, and federal government, Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents, and University regulations and administrative rules. They may be disciplined by the University for violating these standards of conduct on the campus or off the campus when the incident occurs in connection with an institution-oriented activity, or has a substantial connection to the interests of the University, or when the behavior is prohibited by University policy regardless of where it occurs, even if they are or may be penalized by civil authorities for the same act. Institutional disciplinary penalties must not, however, be used merely to duplicate the penalties imposed by civil authority.
Scholastic dishonesty. Since the value of a university degree depends on the absolute integrity of the work done by each student for that degree, a student should maintain a high standard of individual honor in his or her scholastic work.
Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, collusion, and falsifying academic records. See Appendix C, Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities, section 11-802, in this catalog.
Group responsibility. Any student organization is subject to disciplinary action or revocation of registration as a student organization for violation of the penal and civil statutes of the local, state, or federal government, or a rule or regulation of The University of Texas System or the University of Texas at Austin. See Appendix C, Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities, chapter 6, Student Organizations.
Disciplinary procedures. The University of Texas at Austin administers student discipline according to the established procedures of due process. Procedures are defined and described in Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents, Part One, chapter VI, section 3, and in Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities, chapter 11, "Student Discipline and Conduct."
