Article I - Scope of the Code.

  1. This document is a codification of disciplinary regulations enacted to govern the conduct of students on campus or at authorized UI activities. Disciplinary regulations govern the conduct of students on campus and/or at authorized UI activities [see 2200, Section III]. The inclusion of, or failure to include, regulations herein pertaining to academic matters or to motor vehicles shall not affect any regulation, or the enforcement of any regulation, now or hereafter enacted by UI or any college or department thereof pertaining to academic matters or to motor vehicles.

  2. Concurrent Jurisdiction.

    1. Acts in violation of federal, state, or municipal laws come under the jurisdiction of UI only when they are also in violation of this code.
    2. When Dean of Students (hereafter DOS) is informed that criminal charges are being brought against a student for conduct that also violates the Student Code of Conduct, DOS may file disciplinary charges against a student and investigate the incident. DOS has discretion to wait a reasonable period of time before requesting a hearing or final resolution of the disciplinary charges if it is in the best interest of the university disciplinary process to await the outcome of the criminal charges. [ed. 8-07]
    3. If a student is convicted of a crime prior to the university disciplinary hearing, the University Judicial Council (hereafter UJC) shall accept as fact that the student had engaged in conduct that constitutes the crime.
    4. The disposition of criminal charges against the student, if determined prior to the university disciplinary hearing, shall be taken into account by the UJC in determining sanctions against that student. [See 2300, Article XI, Section 5.]

    1. Student. Student as used in this code means:
      1.all persons taking UI courses, both full-time and part-time and/or
