ORIGINATOR: University Registrar and Associate Provost, Student Affairs
SUBJECT: Handling Event-Related Misconduct
In accordance with the Board of Regents Policy on Event-Related Student Misconduct (Policy No. V-8.0), University of Maryland University College ("UMUC") has adopted this Policy to require strong disciplinary sanctions against students who participate in event-related misconduct.
"Event-related misconduct" is rioting, assault, theft, vandalism, fire-setting, or other misconduct related to an institution-sponsored event, occurring on- or off-campus, that results in harm to persons or property or otherwise poses a threat to the stability of the campus or campus community.
"Institution-sponsored event" is any event on or off UMUC or University System of Maryland (USM) premises that is initiated, aided, authorized, or supervised by UMUC or USM.
Allegations of event-related misconduct will be handled in accordance with the procedures in UMUC Policy 151.00 - Code of Student Conduct, Sections IV through VIII.
Students found to have committed event-related misconduct may be subject to sanctions up to and including suspension and expulsion from UMUC. Any decision to impose a sanction of less than suspension or expulsion must be supported by written findings signed by the Provost.
A student suspended for committing event-related misconduct shall not be admitted to any other institution in the USM during the term of the suspension.
A student expelled for committing event-related misconduct shall not be admitted to any other institution in the USM for at least one year from the effective date of the expulsion.
