STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This publication is presented by the University of Louisiana at Monroe Office of Student Services (Student Conduct) to provide students and student organizations with information to guide them in their efforts to function successfully within the University environment. Attempts have been made to include as much information as is feasible in this single document. However, it is neither all inclusive nor does it speak finally for the University. For final authority, students should refer to the ULM undergraduate catalog or contact the Registrar’s Office and/or their Academic Dean.
ROLE OF STUDENTS IN UNIVERSITY GOVERNANCE
The University of Louisiana at Monroe promotes student growth by developing and/or presenting programs and participatory experiences which reflect varied co-curricular, developmental, social and recreational experiences. Student involvement in institutional governance is encouraged and enabled as student representatives serve on University panels, boards, and committees. ULM encourages students to serve as active participants in the everyday decision-making processes that shape and guide the University by providing E-mail, Web site, and print information on a regular basis in addition to granting full and equal press access to student reports.
