Conduct Policy & Procedures

Baker University is committed to assuring student learning and developing confident, competent and responsible citizens (Baker University 2009-2010 College Catalog, pg 1). It seeks to achieve these goals through a sound educational program and policies governing student conduct that contribute to and encourage independent and mature decision making.

Policies governing behavior within the University community are a reflection of its commitment to serve the personal and educational interests of its students. The Office of the Dean of Students has been delegated authority in all student conduct matters by the president of the University. In the absence of the dean of students or the associate dean of students, the vice president of enrollment management and student development shall act in the capacity of the dean in all matters related to student discipline.

At Baker University, student members of the community are expected to uphold and abide by certain standards of conduct that form the basis of the Student Code of Conduct. When members of the community fail to exemplify these standards, campus conduct proceedings are used to assert and uphold the Student Code of Conduct. Students at Baker are subject to University discipline if their conduct endangers the life, property, or rights of other students or persons. The University reserves the right to suspend or dismiss at any time a student whose continuation in the University is not in the best interest of himself or herself, fellow students or the University, and such dismissal may be made without specific charge.
