Behavioral Standards Committee

This committee is composed of both students and faculty members. As a disciplinary agent of the University it hears cases referred to it by the dean of students (or designee) or by the dean of the Graduate School, whenever the behavior of a student (or group) is in violation of the University’s nonacademic behavioral standards. It hears cases involving student organizations upon referral from the dean of students (or designee) when no governing body judicial board exists. It also has jurisdiction over appeals by a student of an adverse decision of a faculty member regarding disruptive behavior in the classroom.

The committee is composed of four faculty members and two faculty alternates appointed by the University Faculty Senate president; three students and two student alternates are appointed by the Student Government Association. The faculty members serve two-year terms. Temporary members may be appointed during the summer sessions if necessary. (See the UALR Student Handbook: Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Behavior.)
