It is expected that all members of the Wake Forest community will strive to live in and to promote an environment that not only recognizes individuality, but also fosters collegiality, respect for the rights and privileges of others, and responsibility for individual and group actions. When undergraduate students fail to meet these expectations, the University, through a conduct system, will determine the nature and extent of infractions and impose appropriate sanctions.
According to the charter of the University, the Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for the University and for its operation. Each student is responsible for their own conduct. The Board of Trustees has charged the faculty and the administration to set forth requirements for the orderly behavior of undergraduate students.
Students should be mindful of the University’s expectations regarding their academic and social behaviors. The University will discourage violations by imposition of sanctions, including, but not limited to loss of on-campus housing, suspension, or expulsion, as defined by applicable policies and procedures. The University Conduct System for undergraduate students is primarily comprised of the Honor Code, the Code of Conduct, and the Student Sexual Misconduct Policy. As explained herein, the Honor Code is jointly administered by the Office of the Dean of the College and the Office of the Dean of Students, the Code of Conduct is administered by the Office of the Dean of Students, and the Student Sexual Misconduct Policy is administered by the Title IX Office.
Other University policies, including, but not limited to, the Policy on Ethical Use of Computing Resources and the Guide to Community Living, may set forth expectations regarding conduct of undergraduate students. Concerns regarding possible violations of those policies may be referred to the Office of the Dean of the College, the Office of the Dean of Students, and/or the Title IX Office for processing under the Honor Code, Code of Conduct, and/or Student Sexual Misconduct Policy. The information provided in this Handbook will supersede any information regarding undergraduate student conduct and disciplinary matters that may be reflected in other publications to the extent that such information is in conflict with the information provided herein.
