All members of the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo community have the right to pursue educational endeavors as part of the institution's fundamental purposes of teaching, learning, and research. Students have the responsibility to maintain standards of personal integrity that are in harmony with the educational mission of the University; to respect the rights, privileges, and property of others; and to observe University policies as well as national, state, and local laws.
The Dean of Students Office in Student Affairs is responsible for holding students accountable for violations of university policy, which are described in the Student Conduct Code. Through the disciplinary process, the office promotes personal responsibility and encourages honesty, integrity, civility, and respect among our students. The disciplinary process is designed to be an educational one though which individuals or groups recognize their mistakes, take responsibility for them, and learn from them.
