Student Conduct

Student Conduct Process

Philosophy and Purpose

The University of Montevallo strives to maintain an educational community that fosters the development of students who are ethical, civil and responsible persons. Students of the University are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the University’s function as an institution of higher education. As a community of learners and scholars, all are expected to maintain conduct which assures orderly pursuit of educational objectives, positive regard for the rights of others, and a safe environment.  The purpose of this document is to set forth the procedures by which the University maintains student behavioral standards.


Responsibility for good conduct rests with students as individuals, for both themselves and their guests. Student organizations have similar responsibility for maintaining good conduct among their members and guests and at activities they sponsor. All members of the University community are expected to use reasonable judgment in their daily campus life and to show due concern for the welfare and rights of others.
