CHAPTER TWO: 2100
STUDENT AFFAIRS POLICIES
THE STUDENT AND THE UNIVERSITY
PREAMBLE: This section deals with certain general topics of interest to UI students. Section A is original to the 1979 Handbook. Section B was added July, 1996, B-1-5 revised in July 1998 and in 2006 edited to reflect changes in university committees listed in FSH 1640. In 2009 this section was revised to refer individuals to each respective committee as listed in FSH 1640. For further information, contact the Dean of Students (208-885-6757). [rev. 7-98, 7-06, 2-09]
A. MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY. UI's acceptance of a student for admission and the student's enrollment in the university constitute an agreement of mutual responsibility. The student's part of this agreement is to accept established UI policies and rules, to respect the laws of governmental units, and to act responsibly and in a manner appropriate to these laws, policies, and rules. UI's part is to carry out its commitment to higher education, to fulfill its responsibilities in pursuit of the academic goals and objectives of all members of the university community, and to meet its obligation to provide an atmosphere in which students will have an opportunity to be heard in matters affecting their welfare as students. UI must take appropriate disciplinary action when it has been ascertained that a student's action is contrary to UI regulations and thus that this agreement has been violated.
B. UI COMMITTEES DEALING WITH STUDENT CONCERNS. The following university-level standing committees (given along with their functions) are of particular interest to UI students. Further information on these committees, along with a full listing of other university-level standing committees, is to be found in Faculty-Staff Handbook section 1640.
