Compliance Certification Report
Comprehensive Standards 3.9.1


Last Updated August 12, 2004
(static edition)


Comprehensive Standards 3.9.1:

The institution publishes a clear and appropriate statement of student rights and responsibilities and disseminates the statement to the campus community.

The Institution Certifies Compliance: Yes

Compliance report completed by: Audit Team 32

Statement of Rationale for Judgment of Compliance:

At the University of Memphis, student rights and responsibilities are published annually in the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities by the office of the Associate Dean of Students for Judicial and Ethical Programs in the Division of Student Affairs. [1] A committee of faculty, students, and staff reviews the code annually, utilizing input from all areas of the university community; any changes must be approved by the university's governing board, the Tennessee Board of Regents. [2]

All new students are invited to attend orientation programs at which they receive the code. They are instructed on student rights and responsibilities in orientation presentations by the Office of Judicial and Ethical Programs. The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities is available on the UofM website [1] and is also published in the Student Handbook and Planner, available in the University Center to all students.

Students who live in university-owned housing are informed of the specific rights and responsibilities relating to resident students in the residence life information brochure, which references the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities (formerly, the Code of Student Conduct).  Each resident student must agree to the rights and responsibilities listed in the brochure before securing housing. [3]

The Graduate Bulletin requires graduate students to observe regulations and policies in the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities. [4] The Graduate Student Association and the University Council for Graduate Studies and Research are in the process of drafting a statement of “Graduate Student Rights and Responsibilities."  Final approval is expected in Fall 2004. [5]

Students in the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law receive a copy of the academic regulations [6] at orientation, where a representative from student affairs also provides information on university rights and regulations.
