Introduction



Community Code of Conduct

The Community Code of Conduct is a portion of The Bruin Guide, which outlines our community expectations, policies, and disciplinary process.  Students, faculty, and staff voluntarily enter into membership in the University community and, in so doing, assume obligations of performance and behavior reasonably expected by that community for the purpose of furthering its mission, vision, processes and functions. 

STUDENTS ACCEPT THE EXPECTATIONS AND POLICIES SET FORTH IN THIS CODE AND OTHER UNIVERSITY RULES, REGULATIONS, AND POLICIES WHEN THEY ARE ADMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY (SEE "SCOPE" UNDER "ADJUDICATION PROCESS"). STUDENTS ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE.

The language used in this handbook is not intended to create nor is it to be construed to constitute a contract between Belmont University and any one or all of its students.

It is the student's responsibility to read the Community Code of Conduct.  Please note that the Community Code of Conduct does not contain all policies of the university and its units, but rather highlights important campus-wide policies.  Students are responsible for any other pertinent policies, handbook, or expectations of other university units the student may be involved in and will be subject to any unit within the university to which the student belongs.

In order to carry out its mission, the University community shall promulgate and enforce appropriate rules, regulations and policies and take action when violations of such rules, regulations and policies occur.  In order to gain more information about that action, please refer to the Disciplinary Process for conduct violation and the Academic Honor System for violations that are related to academic standards and performance. 

The policies section of the Community Code of Conduct are outlined within our Community Commitments.  In order to review each policy, click on the policy and a new webpage will direct you to the policy details.  Policies with multiple sections will direct you to the main policy page with links to each section. 

Please be aware that The Bruin Guide and Community Code of Conduct is only available via the Internet.  If you have any further questions, regarding the Community Code of Conduct, please contact the Director for Student Conduct & Academic Integrity in the Dean of Student's Office at 615-460-6407 or email studentconduct@belmont.edu.
