The code intends to provide the necessary guidelines to support and advance the educational aims of the university without unduly restricting or diminishing the university experience.
UB protects the rights of all members of the university community so they can prosper academically, socially and personally. In order for this code to work effectively, however, students must take responsibility for confronting behaviors exhibited by their peers which negatively impact their experiences and violate established standards of behavior. It is imperative that students work in partnership with faculty members and non-teaching personnel to protect the rights that have been afforded to them. The university reserves the right to change policies or procedures maintained herein at any time during a student’s enrollment period provided such changes are announced throughout the university community via official bulletin boards, online platforms, office publication or student newspaper.
