30 General Rules of Student Conduct
A student’s enrollment at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is considered by the university to be a declaration of acceptance of the university’s standards of conduct. While attending UMHB, a student is expected to obey the laws of the United States, the State of Texas and the City of Belton. Each student is a representative of UMHB and its Christian standards and is therefore expected to demonstrate appropriate conduct BOTH ON AND OFF CAMPUS. All local, state, and federal laws are supported by the university. Therefore, any such violations are subject to discipline by civil authorities as well as university officials. Students who engage in these behaviors on or off campus may expect disciplinary action to be imposed by the university.

31 Misconduct Misconduct – whether on or off campus will be reported to the Dean of Students or other appropriate university official. See student handbook for details regarding student misconduct (process, sanctions and appeal).

32 Alcohol and Drugs The university is committed to the spiritual, mental, social, and emotional development of students and believes that growth in these areas is greatly impaired by mind-altering substances. Education and learning are especially impaired by alcohol abuse and other drug use. It is the goal of the university to provide a drug-free environment in which to live, work, and learn, to discourage the use of alcohol and drugs and to promote sobriety. The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has a strict policy regarding students’ use of alcohol or drugs, regardless of the student’s age. The possession, use, sale, purchase, manufacturing, or distribution of alcohol, illegal or controlled substances, mind or perception altering drugs, or the misuse of chemicals such as glues or solvents, at any time, whether on or off campus, is a violation of the Student Standards of Conduct.

33 Alcohol and Drugs The only exception is the lawful use of prescription medications by the person for whom the medication was intended, or the reasonable use of over-the-counter medications for their intended purpose. Any student who engages in conduct that violates the UMHB Student Standards of Conduct or federal, state, or local laws is subject to discipline whether or not civil or criminal penalties are also imposed for such conduct. If a student violates this policy, at a minimum, the university will impose a disciplinary penalty of disciplinary probation for a specified period of time. Other penalties that may be imposed include suspension from school, suspension of rights and privileges, payment for damage to or misappropriation of property, expulsion, or such other penalty deemed appropriate under the circumstances.

34 Alcohol and Drugs Exceptions to Disciplinary Action: In order to encourage students to seek medical attention if necessary for themselves or other students and to promote students’ safety, the university will not impose disciplinary sanctions for violation of the alcohol policy against a student who: requested emergency medical assistance in response to the possible alcohol overdose of the student or another person; was the first person to make the request for medical assistance; and if the student requested emergency medical assistance for the possible alcohol overdose of another person, remained on the scene until the medical assistance arrived; and cooperated with medical assistance and law enforcement personnel.

35 Discrimination or Harassment
The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor does not unlawfully discriminate in admissions or any of its programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, or disability. The university reserves the right to take its religious convictions and principals into account in connection with its policies and decisions. The University strives to create a campus environment that is free of unlawful discrimination and harassment for all of its students and employees. Students who violate the university’s discrimination and harassment policies are subject to disciplinary sanctions up to and including expulsion and/or termination of student employment status, and may be subject to criminal charges.

36 Examples of Harassment
Communicating verbally or non-verbally, through any medium of communication, offensive or degrading jokes, comments or gestures to, about, or in the presence of another person Using abusive language or directing abusive conduct toward a particular person or group Communicating rumors, defamatory statements or inflammatory comments, verbally or non-verbally, through any medium of communication concerning a particular person or group Bullying (any kind of conduct, speech, gesture, communication or other act which causes or is intended to cause one to suffer fear of physical harm, alarm, intimidation, humiliation or embarrassment, or which creates a hostile environment). Bullying can be a form of unlawful harassment. Whether the conduct is illegal or not, bullying is prohibited by the university. Sexual Harassment or Sexual Violence Retaliation for having reported the harassment

38 HAZING As defined by the Education Code:
“Any intentional, knowing, or reckless act occurring on or off campus, by one or more persons, directed against a student for the purpose of pledging, being initiated into, affiliating with, holding office in, or maintaining membership in an organization. It is a criminal violation under Texas law.”

39 HAZING Is strictly prohibited at UMHB, including solicitation to engage in hazing and aiding and abetting another person who is engaged in hazing. Hazing and failure to report hazing are also criminal violation under Texas law Reporting is mandatory! Any person reporting a specific hazing incident to the Dean of Students or other appropriate institutional official is immune from civil and criminal liability unless the report is in bad faith or malicious.

40 Examples of Hazing Paddling in any form, pushing, hitting, or physical threats Creation of excessive fatigue, or forced or coerced participation in calisthenics Physical or psychological shocks Misuse of authority by virtue of one’s class rank or leadership position Striking another student by hand or with any instrument Any form of physical bondage of a student Taking a student to an outlying area and dropping him/her off
