Nipissing University does not stand "in loco parentis" to its student members, that is, it has no general responsibility for the moral and social behaviour of its students. However, the University recognizes the need for guidelines, regulations and standards of acceptable behaviour which must be based on a sense of responsibility to the University in its broadest sense and to the members of the surrounding community. The University requires that students conduct themselves in accordance with the laws of the country, province, city, and the policies of the University. Dishonesty, willful misconduct, fraud and failure to respect the rights of others cannot be tolerated in a community which is dedicated to the development of responsible individuals.
The University reserves the right to terminate, at any time, its relationship with any student whose *disruptive behaviour is deemed to be detrimental to the purposes and goals of the University. All students should be familiar with the regulations printed in the University Calendar as well as specific policies published from time to time.
*Definition - Disruptive behaviour applies to behaviour that persistently or grossly interferes with academic and administrative activities or reputation of the University.
At Nipissing University, students are free to think, speak, write, create, study, learn, pursue social, cultural and other interests, and freely associate together for all these purposes, subject to the requirement that they respect the rights of members of the University and general community to pursue these same freedoms and privileges. In order to secure these rights, the University will use its best efforts to ensure the following:

The Student Discipline Appeal Committee will render a decision on the appeal within 30 working days of reviewing the written appeal and that decision is final.
