By Staff


A comprehensive review of university conduct policies has resulted in some revisions, reorganization and consolidation of the regent conduct policies.

The Board of Regents on June 18 officially approved the new Article 8: Conduct of Members of the University Community and Policy 8: Conduct of Members of the University Community to create a single law and policy to address conduct-related policies, which previously were located in various sections of the regent laws and policies.  

The new Article 8 includes nondiscrimination, ethical and professional employee conduct – previously located in Articles 1.D, 3.E, 10 and 11.D.

The new Policy 8 includes principles of ethical behavior and professional conduct for university staff, including conflict of interest, outside consulting and service on external boards.
