Faculty Rights

Faculty have the responsibility and authority to establish expectations for their classes that students are expected to meet, and in a manner consistent with University policies. They have the right to:
  • establish classroom standards of behavior and
  • attendance requirements and
  • practices for addressing academic infractions.

If a student is unable to meet these expectations for any reason they should make contact with faculty members as soon as possible.

While most departments have a unique approach in responding to issues of academic misconduct or classroom disruptions, the University expects all academic departments to apply fair, consistent, and commensurate actions, and to report misconduct to Student Conduct.

Consultation

The Office of Student Conduct is a resource for faculty on setting classroom expectations, responding to academic misconduct or classroom disruption, and reporting options.

The Office of Student Conduct if available for consultation if faculty are unsure how to respond to a particular issue. Call (801) 863-8665 or email alarsen@uvu.edu.
