As a private, liberal arts university, the University of St. Thomas has established standards of conduct to foster a safe environment conducive to learning and development.  Students and student groups are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that demonstrates respect for the rights and property of others and upholds the integrity of the university community.  The standards of conduct outlined in the Code of Student Conduct were developed in consultation with students, faculty, administrators and staff with specific consideration for the well-being, honor and dignity of all who live, learn and work in our educational community.
