Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities
University of Louisiana at Lafayette
It is the goal of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) to foster safety, security, wellness, community, and well-being while maintaining a scholarly community. In this effort SRR promotes learning, mindfulness, accountability, civility, and dignity. In addition, SRR builds on diversity, equality, morality, safety and respect for others. The student conduct process at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is created to provide a fair and engaging process for the resolution of alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct. It is our desire to have students who participate in the student conduct process to learn about their own decision-making, how their decisions impact both themselves as well as the larger University community and that they use the conduct process as a stepping stone for their own engagement as community members.
Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities wishes to facilitate student learning and development regarding community standards by balancing individual and community rights. SRR supports a safe and inclusive environment that enhances academic pursuits and student success.When students choose to accept admission to UL Lafayette, they accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the University’s academic and social community. As members of the University community, students are expected to uphold its values by maintaining a high standard of conduct both on and off campus. Because the University establishes high standards for matriculation, the Code of Student Conduct while falling within the limits of the law, may exceed federal, state, or local requirements.
SRR has an "open door" policy, so students don't necessarily have to schedule an appointment or wait an extended period to see a Dean. Students can walk in any time and meet with someone who can provide assistance or support in most instances. If after-hours assistance is needed, a Dean is on call 24 hours a day every day of the year. A dean from the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, or a counselor from Counseling and Testing may be contacted 24 hours a day to assist students in emergency situations. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities wishes each UL Lafayette student a positive experience and encourage all University members to support and guide our students as they grow into learning more about themselves and their role in a community.
