Consolidation of conduct policies becomes effective on June 18, 2020

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

The Board of Regents officially approved the new Article 8: Conduct of Members of the University Community and Policy 8: Conduct of Members of the University Community on June 18, 2020 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 Policy 8 includes principles of ethical behavior and professional conduct for university staff, including conflict of interest, outside consulting and service on external boards.
