Statement on Civil Behavior


A Culture of Learning
A culture of learning requires that all members of the university community act in ways that promote intellectual and moral growth. Texas State’s Honor Code states what it means for us to be conscientious, respectful, and honest: http://policies.txstate.edu/university-policies/07-10-01.html

Being Honest
The College of Liberal Arts joins the university in its strong endorsement of academic honesty and follows the university’s policy for dealing with acts of dishonesty: http://www.txstate.edu/effective/upps/upps-07-10-01.html

Being Conscientious and Respectful
The College of Liberal Arts also supports the university’s commitment to civility. Conduct that is not conscientious or respectful undermines a culture of learning, just as acts of dishonesty do. The following university policy gives examples of unacceptable conduct and sets out ways of responding to such conduct (responses may involve a faculty member, Student Justice, or the University Police Department):

The College of Liberal Arts expects that students will practice civil behavior both in the classroom and in all academic spaces.
